the museum is a nice family outing; some of the exhibits seem a bit worn down and once you go a few times, the excitement just isn't there. however, you can make a day of it buy adding a walk in Curtis Hixon park etc.

My dad had a meeting in Tampa so we tagged along to visit this museum. My kids are ages 6,4, 3 and 1. They had a blast! There were so many things for them to do it was hard keeping them all in the same area. The second floor was awesome and my kids loved the store and the water... More

Took our grandbabies there on free day. They loved it. Then went outside to the playground and watched boats go by. We live out in the suburbs so they were in awe of downtown tampa with all the buildings exct...Great parking garage next door.

Lots of fun for my two year old! Pretend sand area, grocery store, dance area. A little expensive if you won't be there very long.

Spent a few hours here with my 3 yr old. We had a great time. There is a lot to do and he went from room to room exploring. We did a little craft which they have on Monday mornings. We also avoided any school trips. Will be back!

this was a typical childrens museum you will find anywhere USA. my 9 year old liked it but I think she is getting to old . it was geared more for younger aged kids. it was a way to waste 2 hours.

I love this place. We got a year family membership and it was well worth it. My son ready enjoys bouncing around from station to station. His favorites are the trains and water play on the first floor. The museum parking is next door and very affordable. Don't miss a walk through Curtis Hixon Park and along the Riverwalk. There's...
