  • 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.

  • There were some interesting exhibits and an interactive/educational play area which was good for younger children. The entrance fee was reasonably priced, and parking was inexpensive nearby. I felt the majority of the exhibits were geared towards younger children, which is a shame speaking as an adult who loves a good science museum. However, the worst bit for me were the several very tiny animal exhibits featuring animals living by themselves that would normally live in groups which I felt was incredibly inappropriate both for the animals and in the limited information these exhibits actually provided to visitors. Would not recommend to visit this museum for this reason alone.
  • Im not sure who enjoyed this more; me or my two year old daughter. There is a fantastic wildlife section with a variety of animals as you walk in and lots of other exhibitions you would expect of a science museum. A great day out for all ages. Highly recommended
  • A smaller but well maintained and activated Science Centre. Ample parking at the pay-parking lot across the street. Price point was a little high given the limited attractions. Focus on aviation, biology, physiology. Corporate sponsorship is endemic and surprising given the high entrance price.
  • This is the best option around East Broward if you are looking for a Children’s Museum to take your kids. My oldest has been there 3 times at 4, 5 and 6 years of age, and we just took our toddler who is 17 months old. At all those ages I can say we had fun, it was clean, it was engaging, it was interesting, it was awesome. And the prices are not bad at all for what they offer. You can also park your car in the lot across the street and pay with Paymobile. The only down side is that they only have a Subway in the front. I know this happens in every Children’s Museum in the area but I honestly think they should have better choices for hungry kiddos. You should plan the timing of your visit taking in account there is nothing to eat there.
  • With The I-Max movie theater inside one of the coolest and fun for everyone. And the kids have so much fun they don't realize their getting a science education while enjoying themselves. You may have the next Carl Sagan or Neil de'Grasse Tyson living with you?
