This was a fun interactive experience for kids. It was very interactive and the staff was friendly. There were multiple tours going on that the staff told us specific times to avoid the groups.

So many things to do. Exhibits are being updated and are very engaging for children. Programming happening throughout the day for visitors. A great way to spend a few hours particularly when it's hot or rainy.

I thought it would be nice to visit the museum since the weather is insanely hot. The cost for the museum is $20 a person...plus a $1 per hour for parking. (Military active/retired are free -- family members $6 a piece) When I parked, I had paid for 4 hours assuming it would take us a long time to get... More

We came here on a Friday afternoon and the kids had an amazing time exploring the museum! There was so much for them to do and see. It wasn't over crowded at that time either. I highly recommend taking your little ones!!

A great way to beat the heat when visiting Miami is to visit the Miami Children Museum. There's enough to do and keep them entertained and busy.

The Museum is amazing. Very fun !! Many differents sections where the kids can touch everything and learn in a very fun way Although, if you have a teen in the group, i would not recommend this museum for you. It's for children not teens We love the tornado effect !! The Olympics section it's very cool 100% recommended

Expensive, crowded, dirty. We visited this museum during Summer 2016. There were several summer camp groups and it was very crowded. Kids and students had to pay full price. No discounts. A lot of the exhibition games were old and broken. I would not recommend this attraction at all.
