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.

I loved this museum for my kids. It took me by surprise when I entered. They had a whole lot for kids to do here including making a pretend emergency call to 911, actually scanning food products as if they were really grocery shopping!!! Cruise ship, music studio, pet shop etc. it was extremely fun and anytime I'm in Miami... More

For $20/each (including children), it's worth it because of the many different environments to the kids to interact to (they probably will stick to a couple after trying them all, but that's expected, right?).

We went on Tuesday afternoon, it was raining so it was the best shot we had for the 2 year very active boy. We paid $10 p/p and we spent from 4pm to 6pm in the museum. Some shows were closed as they were experiencing an electrical issue. We liked the museum a lot and at 6pm when the museum... More

Nothing fancy or spectacular about this museum, but it is a fun place and you´ll have a good time with your kids. Plenty of games and activities. Good for a time-out of Miami´s beach, sun and heat.

This is a great museum, its very big so stay close by your child, it's also very loud and noisy, a lot of echo in the building. other than that they have good attractions. you can plan a day at this museum.

I went to this museum for the first time and in my opinion it is not well kept, most of the attractions are not working properly and they need maintenance, I think it could be in better shape. My kid loved it and had fun, but for $15 per person and children 12 months and over pay the same I... More
