  • I have been taking my four grandchildren to MODS since they were toddlers. (Three of the four are now teenagers.) We have enjoyed every minute of our membership. Each one has their favorite area and we go to all the areas. It is interesting that open-ended activities keep them going back year after year, experimenting and using the items differently. We are looking forward to seeing our brick in the science playground with each grandchild’s name engraved on it. Thanks to all the talent and hard work that has gone into this educational and entertaining museum.
  • There were loads of interesting things but we found the layout open concept added a lot of noise to the experience. Our little one didn't long because of that. As well, we found the pricing for little kids between 2 and 5 pretty high given they can't really interact that much with items on the second floor.
  • I love going to mesuemes and this one is no exception. I came from out of state and saw this on the map so I had to stop by. Decent prices and wonderful exhibits! Some things were not well kept but I can only imagine that has something to do with the larger population of FL. If you're in the area and have some time, stop by here then take a stroll near the river.
  • Love this place. I take my kids here and they run around all over the facility. 2 floors and an outdoor area. They love the animal exhibits and can't keep thier hands off anything. Which is exactly the point. Good price for admission. Munchies and drinks at the snack bar but no food. Play area near the front. Its a fun place. Even for adults.
  • It's really fun. I've been going here with my kids for about 7 years now. It never gets old. In fact there are so many new rides. New things to see and do and discover. I do however suggest that you eat before you him the subway that was there is no longer there. The only food is the theater food and it's a bit pricey. ( like 3 dollars for a regular Pepsi bottle) other than that I LOVE IT.
