We visited GCM during our vacation in Tampa. It is wonderful! We have five year old twins who both loved every exhibit. There is a wide range of activities and displays - lots to climb through, get your hands dirty and just general play. And...More

We've now been here a few times, and never regret it, despite a hefty entrance fee. So much to do, so engaging, well-kept activities, lots of space to spread out and try new stuff. We'll be back time and again!

Great place for kids as long as it isn't busy. It gets small quickly once it fills up. Staff was attentive and reset things quickly so that kids could keep playing. Overall was worth going to.

While I would definitely say that children will enjoy their time here it should be added that your timing matters. When we visited the first floor was closed for some updates (understandable) but tickets were full price. This would have been less disappointing if, when...More

We had a blast with my 10 month old! He played in the ball pit for ever and walked around the 1st floor. The second floor was good too! Lots to do and see!!

It depends on the child. My kids, ages 5&10, spent 4 hours and wanted to stay longer.
