It's been a little while since my family last visited Great Ex. When my son wanted a birthday party there I didn't hesitate. I booked the party with just a couple weeks’ notice. The staff were accommodating to my delay in planning. It was a smooth and easy process.
We hosted several families with children ranging in age from 18 months to 7 years. My sons (ages 5 & 7) were engaged from the moment we stepped into the museum. The kids were able to play in groups and individually. Some exhibits are better with the involvement of a parent (Fit4AllKidsVille, Pet Vet, TV news show). Other activities are better when the kids just play (the rubber sand beach, Publix grocery store).
Our guests (parents and kids) were delighted and entertained. A few had not been there before, but will likely be back. My kids were safe and engaged. I prefer that their play be meaningful, which it is here. We were at Great Ex for close to 3 hours and could have spent more time.
The door admission is just $10 per person - a great value for several hours of activities to hold their interest. Locals should check out a membership which makes this already great value even better. We now have a membership and my boys can't wait to go back.
