  • We went there today and the Curious George and Clifford exhibits are awesome! We got there as soon as the museum opened to attend an event with a children’s books author and illustrator. If you have l...  more »
  • We only went for the exhibits and found it to be very reasonable for tickets compared to similar museums. $45 for 2 adults and 1 child. Lots of interactive exhibits that kept us busy for 3.5 hours and...  more »
  • Small museum, but quite interesting for those who have small children. Are two storeys high and does not take long to know. Costs around $15 per person. Pretty cool and fun. Recommend.

  • We visited for the day and had a fantastic time. The kids loved learning about hurricanes (their forces and preparations you can do). We spend almost the entire day there waiting for a flight. The manager, Kevin, and staff at the gift shop allowed us to leave our luggage in a secure place while we visited for the day at no charge! Great experience. Next time we are in town, we'll be back!
  • I remember when they built this place. I was there when they buried stuff in a time capsule years ago. I even did some volunteer work here at one point. I've been an annual member here with my kids for at least the last five years and my mother was my whole childhood. Will usually stroll in after a Sunday Jazz Brunch to take a look around at new exhibits. If it wasn't for the new exhibits there would be very little for us to look at when we go since it doesn't really change that much. They just build an outside area that we have yet to see but it looks really cool.
  • Been here a few times. It is a good location with the parking garage right across the street. Really geared for grade school kids, but it is a good local museum and science place. Movies in 3D are pretty cool. I'm glad that we have it in town.
  • My kids (4 and 2) had a blast at this museum! There was a ton of interesting things to do and learn about and the staff was very nice and informative. I had a lot of fun too, as did my 14 year old cousin who came with us. I wish the admission price was a little lower, but overall I feel like it was worth every penny. I would absolutely recommend it to my friends when they visit Fort Lauderdale!
  • This place was fantastic. Lots of interactive exhibits, some really cool live animal areas (don't miss the bats and arachnids up above the tanks) and an all around great place to take kids. Really friendly and knowledge staff, I'm absolutely coming here again.
