This museum is great in that it teaches kids about different professions and is very hands on with allowing them to explore the functions these professions do. It is almost a play ground within a museum. They have a small restaurant and gift shop, but the food is okay. Would eat elsewhere. Great activity for a hot day in Miami!

I would have given 5 star if it wasent for the stiff price 80 dollars for 2 kids and to adults. The kids loved it and we stayed for 5 hours.

My family had a blast here! We could have stayed here for hours. We came on a week day so it was full of school groups until lunch time.

This was once a wonderful museum. It is now extremely deteriorated. Everything looks dirty and worn.

This is the only Children's Museum in Miami and it lacks variety and space. Once you have been to it once, you pretty much done with it unless a new exhibit is added and most of the time is not even big enough or interesting enough to make it worth the trip and the money for it.

Variety of things to keep things entertained. Educational activities for many ages. A little pricy but they do have one free day every so often. I believe once a month.

Went to the museum with our 5 year old son. He loved it, there were tons of activities and sections. The publix supermarket and fire station were our favorites. There was an art section where they got yo take home a project they made and also music section that was super cool. We happened to go on the first weekend... More
