My ASD son loved it here when I took him. He couldn't get enough. Everyone seemed to be having a great time.

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

Firstly I'd like to confirm that this place is a little tatty. Quite a few things are broken, the carpets look a bit faded, and it's a little bit dated. But if you are a one year old then that doesn't seem to matter. We went twice and my little one was so excited he couldn't stop running around. He... More

Great place to take your kids, but location although beautiful, traffic could be an issue. Located on the main highway leading to South Beach, sometimes there could be a bit of traffic. Worth the trip, make it a day event.

I reviewed this place two years ago, when my boy was 2 yrs old, and I found some improvements after visiting it again last week. Pros: New fun areas (like the exercise/movement and sports pavilions) were my son's favorite and mine as well; Fl residents and Miami Dade Residents reduced entrance fee; friendly front desk cashier; clean bathrooms. Cons: two... More

We were interested in something that would please our 11 year old and the whole family could enjoy. We have all enjoyed the Indianapolis children's museum in this way. This is more of a play place for young kids than an actual museum that can enrich your family's understanding of anything. I want to give a huge compliment to the... More
