  • I took my Grandaughter to this Museum and she had so much fun she did not want to leave. She loved being a cashier in a simulated Public grocery store and rung up groceries over and over again. This i...  more »
  • This place is great! It is not much to look at on the outside, just a hole in the wall in historic downtown. But you are immediately taken away from any normalcy once you enter. Whether you are distra...  more »
  • Kids loved this museum. The orange grove in the basement was their favorite. We anticipated staying only 2 hours because I've heard it was small. We had to pay for parking by the hour. We stayed 4 hou...  more »

  • Really good for younger kids. My youngest is 8 1/2 and she was too big for some of the activities. The Publix area is ok. Some things in the news area don't work. No chalk in school area either time we went. The third floor didn't have much of interest. The orange floor was barely ok.
  • Not a good experience at all. There were way too many children not being supervised with no shoes on and being reckless to the museum and other children. Unfortunately the only staff person insight was sitting at the front counter on their phone. Such a sad thing for a small business in Lakeland with so many generous people and organizations donating to them.
  • Great museum for younger kids. Always very clean. I had one of my daughters birthday parties here about 3 years ago and the kids loved it- it was a science theme.
  • Best place to take the little ones who want something different, not crowded and it's always clean.
  • Recently while visiting family in Lakeland we took 4 of our grandchildren to visit your museum. Their ages range from 1 1/2 years old to 11. All 4 of them had a blast!!!!! We spent 3 1/2 hours there and they didn't want to leave! They especially loved the "orange grove". They shopped at the market and put on a play at the theatre. The two oldest loved the news room and studio. The 6 year old loved the space ship and fire truck. And the "baby" loved climbing up into the "tree house" and reading books with Grandma. I was impressed with how well the facility was kept up. I would love to see something like this in the town where we live. Maybe...
