  • This museum with the characteristic in a space not very wide to show you of animals in their natural environment, and explain many things about science, to see great minerals, a prehistoric, and of course the history corner space with simulators through a ride in the Everglades. You end up with the Imax choosing your film schedules. This museum is dedicated to young people, but we spent a little over an hour taking fun to see or review these discoveries. See for a passage to Fort Lauderdale.

  • The turtle watch tour was amazing!!! Very interesting and good introduction in the museum. We could even enter the museum before the official meeting time and have a look around with only a few people around. Super cool atmosphere. The tour at the beach was so exciting and we were so lucky and could watch a turtle lay her eggs, cover her nest and return back to the ocean. Loved all about it and feel super happy and grateful!
  • I bought an annual pass which is a good deal if you go here more than once and gives a great discount in the Summer Savings Pass. The permanent exhibits are fun, but many areas need updating our replaced parts. The latest traveling exhibit is a bit boring, but science show and 7D movie are still my kids' favorites. I get free parking because I work in the area, but parking should be a consideration as well. $1.25 an hour or $7 for the day I think.
  • Loved visiting here on vacation with kids. The exhibits were in great shape and the souvenir shop is reasonable. Subway and Auntie Anne's was a nice surprise. Check out the cool simulators!
  • Excellent for kids and adults with an eye for wonder. They have puzzles and fun things to try. My mother and I enjoyed ourselves and she was 56 and I was 28 at the time.
  • Nice museum. 2 floors of some really fun exhibits. Cool virtual experiences. The discovery area was really fun. Downside: parking is $1.25 an hour at the garage across the street from the museum. The gravity clock wasn't working. The outside of the museum looked unkept.
