Our son loves this stuff so we wanted to take him there. We did not enjoy it as much as we probably could due to the fact that when we got there we saw about 10 school buses up front.
Of all day to pick...More

When planning your next visit please note that field trip groups are generally gone by 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. Mondays have fewer field trips. We look forward to seeing you again.
This is where I take visitors if they have kids and its raining. Wonderful museum, well run and they have first run movies at the IMAX, saw a couple of Potter films here and was spoiled from then on. Weirdest thing was a manager would...More
The fascination of this museum begins before you even enter, with the sculpture-in-motion that dominates the entry courtyard. Inside, there are hands-on activities for every age group, and plenty of interactive exhibits covering a wide range of scientific and natural subjects. Be sure to visit...More
We went on a rainy afternoon as we were trying to keep our two year old grandson amused. He loved it. The majority of the exhibits are hands on. He was bit young for some of them but he had a blast. There's a special...More

Just three might be a little young, but there are plenty of hands on things to do that even very young children can enjoy. Our four year old grandsons had a blast. While there were some activities they couldn't participate in, those were few and far between. As I recall, there was a special area for younger ones near the entrance and once my grandsons got in there, they were having so much fun it was hard to get them to leave to explore the rest of the museum.

Ft Lauderdale beach is great, but with little ones I would head north to Pompano Beach, where there is also a splash pad , playground on the sand, concession stands, and an ice cream store. My Grandchildren love the splash pad, and the beach is right there as well. If you're coming north on A1A you would turn tight into Atlantic and there is lots of parking.
Sheraton Yankee Trader vs Clipper? (7 Replies)
Of the two, which would you recommend for a 3-night precruise stay for our group of 2 children(5yr & 7yr), an elderly grandma and 2 adults? How much would transportation from the airport to the hotels, and transportation to Port Everglades be? Also, are either conveniently located for a visit to the Museum of Discovery and Science(is this worth going to?). We will not be driving. Are there any restaurants within walking distance(considering the ages of people in our group) for...More

I believe the Trader maybe somewhat easier for walking to breakfast and whatever however someone posted about construction to the south so ask for the north tower. The Plaza is about five blocks south of the hotel with a wide selection of restaurants. Also the water taxi is an option for some sightseeing the little ones may get bored so I would limit that but if I remember right you can connect to the Port via the taxi. You can catch the taxi by going right from the south end of the hotel to...More

We are a family of of 4 with 2 11 years old boy arriving Fort Launderdale July 30 and leaving Aug 2 to go to Orlando. We would like some advice of what to do and where to stay. We currently booked a motel in town, but are wondering maybe best to stay closer to Everglades. Everglades national park Museum of Discovery and Science Kennedy space center Thanks

If you want to spend anytime in the national park you may want to consider staying further south altogether - However if you want a taste of the everglades ie airboat ride and gator farm there are some places up nearer fort lauderdale. It's a fair old drive upto Kennedy though!
