Owner description: The Children's Science Explorium, located inside Sugar Sand Park Community Center, is a hands-on science center designed for children 5 - 12 years of age and their caregivers. We offer fascinating and interactive exhibits, programs and camps that bring the physical sciences to life. In addition to our permanent exhibit collection, the Explorium offers its visitors a variety of traveling exhibits each year. From rockets to molecules, the museum engages and teaches children about the fantastic world of science! (Please note: The outdoor Science Playground will be closed for renovations beginning June 15, 2015. Look for our new fully accessible, all abilities playground Spring 2016. The Tot Lot & Carousel will be open.

This is a must go for anyone with kids. The entire park is great....
Spend 30 minutes or 3 hours...great free entertainment...
Explorium asks for donations which you will be more than happy to give! The place is alot of fun...usually have to convince the adults to leave! Lots of interactive displays...educational and fun...never had a child dislike this place!

It's small but worth it, very cool and interesting things for the little ones, I'll said around 3 to 8 years old. You probably will be there for like an hour at the most,the good thing is that is inside the Sugar Sand Park so you can spend sometime in the park and when ever your a little bit to hot go inside to the Children Science Explorium and do some activities under the AC, they accept donations, $ 5 per person.

If you have kids ranging from 4 to 12 it is a great place to take them. It is not so big that they get lost and has a little bit of everything, even an IMax theater. It is getting a little old and it needs some renovations but overall I would go there.

The Expkorium is fantastic for children and children at heart. They have an ever changing room with hands-on exhibits and another room with exhibits which stay the same year round.
they also offer day camps for the summer, movies and other wonderful things. In front of the Explorium is a beautiful old-fashioned carousel and a "fort" where the children can run & play. There is a water feature, so the kids can cool off on a hot Florida day. If you have kids, please don't miss the Explorium! There is so much to see and do, your kids will love you for it.
