  • I bought the yearly membership pass but we probably won't use it much. The place is an absolute disaster and very dirty. They only have one young girl working the front desk, who is very sweet, but spends the entire time on the phone and forgets everything you ask her. Members still have to pay for ALL of their events, they just give you a couple dollars off. It has potential even though it's tiny inside, but whoever runs it is simply not on top of it.
  • Outstanding customer service, very patient staff and my kids love it. Also cheap with annual pass, i love their painting classes and soccer classes. Also very affordable for kids party as well. Thank a lot
  • My kids love this place! It is a Charming little Museum and a historic house. We love the history. All the people who work there are really nice. It's a small place so it can get a little cramped but well worth the visit
  • I was worried after reading some reviews that it would be dirty, but I did not find that to be true. My 4 year old and almost 2 year old were entertained and enjoyed all the play areas. The only bummer was that all of the outside areas were closed today. The pirate ship and the carriage were closed because of the hurricane, and the water tables said "closed for maintenance " but another patron said they have been closed since a month before the hurricane. It is definitely geared for younger kids, and the few kids over 5 seemed pretty bored. The staff was nice and we enjoyed our time there.
  • Wonderful place to take kids to on the weekend. They have great activities during the winter holidays. The schedule changes every season so I recommend checking before you plan a trip there. They have lots of parking during the peak season. A hassle-free recreation!

Where to stay in Boca Raton

Resorts and oceanside hotels with peach and pink stucco architecture populate Boca Raton's coastline. Farther inland from the beaches, there's a wide selection of affordable lodging in chain hotels and rental properties. For a longer stay, consider renting a furnished apartment from a private owner near the city's downtown. Those looking for a stress-free vacation could try an all-inclusive vacation package at one of the seaside resorts.
