“Nice Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

This review is difficult for me b/c I have been to the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia which is the most fabulous interactive kids museum ever, so I'll try to not compare this museum to that museum. Overall, I would say that this museum is very good. The location is great, the building is clean, the staff is very nice, and the exhibits overall are good. We visited on Memorial Day, and the museum set up carnival games around the museum which I thought was a great touch! My only gripes with this museum is that it's not as big as I thought it was going to be based on information I read, and many of the exhibits didn't work which was disappointing. My son is four and really enjoyed the exhibits that were working, however. I think that, if the museum adds a few more exhibits and upkeeps the existing exhibits better, this place would be a definite place to visit for families in Tampa, especially considering the cost of the tickets compared to some of the other attractions in the city.

“not for all kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We took our 9 year old and 18 month old grandsons. The museum just wasn't suited for their ages. It seems like it is geared toward kids from 3-7 years old.

“Great for kids”

My son loved every minute of this museum. He loved all the stuff they had there. He is a big dinosaur lover and when he saw them there he was in love. Great place for kids.

“Great for Little kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

My twin 3 year old girls love this place. It's interactive and there's something for everyone to do. They loved playing Doctor and Firefighting. They also had fun in the little store. We ended the day in the beach area off the boat. It was clean and pretty organized. We bought the family membership for the better deal and its a great place out of the sun or rain. It is best suited for 2-5 year olds. There was a couple things 5-7 would like but not enough for all day fun.

“Good Place to spend time with Kids having fun and learning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Good Place to spend time with Kids having fun and learning at both time. Also there is a big park outside the museum and there also you can spend good amount of time. If you just want to enjoy some water sprinkles and park no fees is required. This is in the downtown so you can roam around if you want. good options for food outside.
