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!

The Tot Lot & Carousel will be open.

This venue of understandable yet amazing science is the best I've ever encountered.

The automated displays are almost never broken or cheap, the demonstrations are mind-boggling and fun.

My 2-year-old granddaughter fell in love with the place immediately as did my 33-year-old son and his father. There are interactive displays that entice everyone to open his/her mind to new possibilities and each has either audio or written explanations about what is being experienced - a truly fun learning experience.

Children's art adorns the walls in the passageways and volunteers are always present to lend additional assistance for anyone with a handicap or someone who simply "doesn't get it".

Of all the "children's museums" I have visited, this one absolutely rocks.

My reviews of this is under my sugar sand park review- amazing hands on experience that will keep kids busy for hours. Free entry unless you want to make a donation (which you should because this place is wonderful).

The kids had a blast. all kinds of scientific experiments, and
activites inside, so if the Florida weather is not so good, its a good place to go.
