“Very nice museum located in a beautiful park in downtown Tampa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

We took our kids here ages 5 and 3. They had so much fun that they did not want to leave. The museum was clean, updated, and in a modern building. Staff was very courteous! The building is located in a park and it also had a splash park in the front. As far as admission price, I found it to be very comparable with other museums. Overall, I recommend this museum to families with young children. Definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.

“Went for 2 hours stayed all day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Our 22 mth old loved paying in the different areas especially the boat, super market and the speed run areas. We had planned form the websit e to stay for about 2 hours but ended up spending the day there...it's fantastic!!! Recommend checking their website we went on a $5 day which was a big saving per head.

“Great for kids 4-7, but ages 1-10 can appreciate it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Took our 1 year old granddaughter. She loved most of the activities - though clearly in her own way as most of the exhibits are aimed at children at least 3-4 years old. A child can easily spend hours here (at one or more of the many "areas") but their parents will probably want to move on to see what else there is (that's what happened to us). There is an annual family membership that is worth the money (it pays for itself with only 3 visits for 2 parents and 1 child) - but that's partially because it is fairly expensive for a day's visit -- and it bothered me that they charge the regular children's price for a 1 year old. All in all, highly recommended - and as my son said, especially in the hot days of summer!

“More for the little kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Took my boys here because it was 5 dollar admission days. You can't really complain when you are paying the same amount you would pay for a footlong sandwich. My kids are 11 and 8. If they were still 5 and 2 this would have been perfect. But the 11 year old was bored out of his noggin. Have you hung out with a bored tween. I'm surprised his eyes didn't fall out from all the rolling. But it was a great value and once again if the kids were younger, it would have been perfect.
