If you would like your child to be exposed to daily activities that adults take for granted, but will totally make them feel like it's their world too. This is the best place to do Just that. All exhibits are to scale, and will fit your child physically, visually, and emotionally. None the less your child will want to ask... More

I guess it used to be great but it's not anymore... Toys seem very old, they are all used, pieces missing. It's really impossible to play in ER or Vet clinics, just few old toys laying around. The uniforms are dirty... Our little one played, we did enjoy the time there, but I expected much much better from Miami, US!

Overall this is a good museum and among the better ones I have visited. There are 2 floors of things to do. One of the main reasons we went here initially was their Thomas the Train exhibit which is there until January 2017. I'm sure it is hard though for the museum to prevent kids from taking the trains despite... More

I took my three year old granddaughter there on a week day. The museum is set up for different age groups. Unfortunately there were several public school classes on field trips. Although my three year old was in an age appropriate area she ended up being pushed by kids 5-6 years older. The museum did not have adequate staff to... More

The waterfront skyline views from nearby this attraction are worth a visit in themselves - both day and night. It's pretty easy to make your way down to the waterfront - only a couple of roads, so can't go 'very' wrong.

This is one of the best children's museums I have been to. It has a lot of interactive things for kids to do and if you let them, you'll be there 3 hours. It has art, ship cargo, little motor boats you control around the bay, a fishing spot (with plastic fish), pretend nurses station, music station, and there are... More

It is a great place, kids love it, it has different role play activities, from a mini model supermarket to a cruise ship, it's lot of fun. Highly recommended for children.

My mother and I came here on Christmas eve when my little brother fractured his arm. The staff were very fast in helping him and all of them were very nice! My mother and I loved the cute present delivery they left for him Christmas morning. He woke up incredibly happy saying, "Look Santa knew I was here" I can... More
