this was a typical childrens museum you will find anywhere USA. my 9 year old liked it but I think she is getting to old . it was geared more for younger aged kids. it was a way to waste 2 hours.

I love this place. We got a year family membership and it was well worth it. My son ready enjoys bouncing around from station to station. His favorites are the trains and water play on the first floor. The museum parking is next door and very affordable. Don't miss a walk through Curtis Hixon Park and along the Riverwalk. There's...

I wasn't so sure if my toddler would like it there or really have much he could do since he's only one but it was actually fun and he loved running around exploring. The upstairs part with the different themed sections like a publix, cafe, vet, etc was a hit as well as the "house" with the ball pit, tunnel... More

The children really enjoyed their time spent here. There are many interactive stations and just rooms for the kids to play or read. The space is large and I'd love to see some additions to the space as there is so much more that could be done. We went on Free Tuesday which was great. We were there about 3... More

Went on a weekday so it was not crowded. Staff were friendly and nice. The exhibits were interactive and fun. A lot of thought was put into the exhibit space. Could do with some live demos, though. Children had a great time, nevertheless.

We tag teamed as our Granddaughter shopped in Public, filling up the cart. Fortunately it was play cause even if I could eat what she put in the cart I certainly... More

Last year I reviewed this place and put it on a pedestal. This trip we unfortunately discovered broken features, not as clean restrooms and not as friendly staff. The 'Publix' store had limited 'groceries when the room filled up with just a single handful of kids, the water attraction had many tubes and stops that just didn't work. The prices... More

Parked in the Poe garage and found a spot as soon as we entered in the short term spaces that say 3 hours or less. Perfect!! My whole bill was $5 for parking thats it. Had a Subway restraunt inside if you want... More
