After hearing from many of my friends with small children about this place, I decided after spending all day at Tresure Island Beach on Sunday, my nephew needed a day inside away from the sun and heat. So I took him (7 year old) and my mom. We arrived around noon. Parking was hard to find even in the parking... More

I have 2 boys 6 & 7 and they had fun but got bored pretty quickly. While they had fun, the place did not keep them engaged long enough to say it was worth the visit.

If you go during the summer, you might want to call ahead and find out what day they don't have field trips from the local summer camps. I know there is one day during the week that they don't have summer camps there. There is a fun, simple but fun, splash park area outside, as well as a playground. Subway... More

There is so much to do, and all activities are current! STEM and fun combined. I only wish we lived closer to be able to bring our kid more often. Hours of fun!

Can't believe we haven't been here before. I was blown away by how much there was to do and how much the kids enjoyed it. So many adventures to be had.

We took our two kids here while visiting family in the area and they loved it. Our oldest (3) couldn't decide what she wanted to do as everything was so exciting to her. I'm pretty sure she would have been fine staying there all day. Our son (1) was probably too little for most things at the time, although he... More

We decided to buy a membership, so my son and I could visit the museum many times during our stay in Tampa. This was the best decision I could make. He loves this place! They have a calendar of activities, so you can decide when to visit the museum. This include some specific days when the entrance is free. There... More

If it were A little cheaper, I would have rated it excellent. However, if I were local, I would have bought the season pass and that would've made the price worth it. A season pass is one price for the entire family. There are three floors with plenty to do, very helpful staff, and areas throughout the entire place just... More
