  • The displays are awesome. This is every kids playground. Parents can enjoy and the kids play. Great place to host a birthday party although I have attended a wedding reception before.  more »
  • We came to Mobile for my brother's wedding. I have six children ages 9 and under, so we're kind of limited on activities that we can do safely. This was a great children's museum. My kids loved the Cu...  more »

  • We loved our visit to the Exploreum. The human body exibit was playful and insightful. The engineering playroom was engaging. Both my 6 and 8 year old kids enjoyed building parachutes and folding paper airplanes. This place was high quality for a low cost.
  • Went today with our 8 kids while on vacation. This was the worst money we have ever spent. A lot of the exhibits didn't work. There wasn't much to do. We have a science museum in Oklahoma City that rocks and after having they one, this one looked like a little bitty baby in comparison and then not having everything fully functional didn't help. We were so excited bc we thought it was going to be this huge, amazing science museum like we're used to.... Big let down for all of us.
  • This is a great place for family and school trips. They have high quality exhibits and they even have the IMAX
  • This place was a lot smaller than I thought it would be. They do have a variety of creatures from sharks and turtles to birds and otters. It only takes about an hour to go through. They do have animal talks and feeding. There's a snack bar with popcorn, nachos, hot dogs, ect. It would be a fun experience for little kids, but the older ones will recognize it being small.
  • Great place for kids. My son is 1 so he got bored easily.
