“Too expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Spent around 80 dollars to get in with 3 adults and 2 toodlers. You can easily do the entire museum in less than 4 hours. Exibits are small and while some are interesting, most are small and can get full easily. The attraction in the other side of the road (jungle island) is way better for your money. For begginers it offers a much better playground.

From the looks of it is quite obvious that this attraction is facing some funding issues, even with the high price tag.

“Funny time for children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

It's OK for children. There are different áreas, like the Firefighter station, wher the kids can wear firemen uniforms.
You can play with your children to be doctor and patient.
The Little market, with small food to play like a real grocery store.
There are many other áreas, it will take at least 2 hours to make children happy.

“Great stop for the kids”

The Miami Children's museum is a great way to spend a few hours with your children. The interactive setting will certainly keep the kids entertains whilst providing a nice learing experience for all.

“Not really a museum, but kids like it.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I went with my grandchildren on an open house day. They had a lot of fun, but it was definitely not what you would call a museum. When we asked about the cost of a regular ticket, we were shocked at how expensive it was. Several attractions looked old and neglected, but the best was the dinosaur exhibition. In my opinion the most useless attraction was the small supermarket. Are there really any children out there who do not go to the supermarket?
