A great place to bring the kids on a rainy day! Too much for them to see - albeit bring YOUNG kids, not 10+ (my view). It is a fun place to divert their attention and far better than a pizza buffet!

First of all, the name is misleading. Coming from Europe and having seen the hands on experiments for children in the science museum of San Francisco a few years back, I expected something else. This is really an indoor playground for young kids where you...More

Kids love this museum. Great place to go on a rainy day. And there are lots of food places next door and across the street for lunch. Dad can always go next door to Carabba's if he needs a 'time out'!

If you have kids that are elementary school age...this is a must-see. There is SO much for them to play with and do...its all hands-on...so no worries. From the Publix "store" to the upstairs "pediatric center"...and everything in between. Plan on spending ALL DAY.

This is a well rounded place for children. It awakens their minds, and their imagination as well. They thoroughly enjoy it! Brought my great grand son and his friends and they were busy with many of the exploration areas.
