  • We went here because of the rain and really enjoyed ourselves. The museum is incredibly interactive but not crowded. There are multiple kinds of exhibits so everyone should be able to find something.....  more

  • Love the learning aspect for all ages! Great atmosphere (although it certainly felt warm in the building) and a great variety of exhibits. Would like to see some newer exhibits as some of the exhibits have been there for many years. Enjoyed it but not sure I would return for the same exhibits. Loved the weather science, outdoor area, and the airplane exhibits!
  • This seems to be the best place to take kids in Ft. Lauderdale. The facility has so many hands on stations for kids to enjoy plus a 7D theater ride (Toy Ride) which my great nieces and nephews enjoyed. We all enjoyed watching the Wings Over Water 3D. The kids absolutely loved Design Build Play and the outside playground. They also have a Discovery Center for kids 6 and under that is very nice and has a variety of things to do. They also have a gift shop but the prices are somewhat high. There are items for kids under $15 that are decent. The staff members are also very friendly and helpful. We arrived around 12:30pm and it was very crowded. By 3pm the crowd thinned out. My suggestion is to go around 3:30pm to avoid the crowd. It was so peaceful and no line to ride etc. This is a place for kids to have loads of fun while learning. I highly recommend visiting if in the area.
