Great Explorations is an awesome place to beat the heat, stay out of the rain or avoid any other 15 minutes of inclement weather Florida throws at you. Kids have to play and explore, GE, has the space and resources for the little ones to do it all! I have seen a lot of improvement to an already great place over the past year and look forward to renewing our annual membership.

Great place for children. Tons of activities. I really like the layout (big and open). The toddler area was closed for the first hour and and 20 min due to cleaning. I feel like they need to do this after hours.

Great place to spend the day bonding with your children. Relatively inexpensive and filled with tons of learning activities that allow your child learn while enjoying their afternoon.

Our young boys (4 and 6) had a great time in this well stocked indoor play space for children. Perfect for a rainy day. There are lots of options for open ended play. Favorites included the fire truck, the imagination playground, and the tennis ball shooter. The worst thing is you can't bring coffee into the play area. You can drink it in the gift shop, however, which is what we did.

This was a neat place with a lot for the kids to do. Be sure to check if they accept reciprocal memberships to a children's museum near you. It's in a building with carrabas Italian food and a garden so you have to look at the soon carefully. The kids had a blast. It easily entertained them for several hours with all there was. They had a news anchor area, firefighter area, grocery store, and a good assortment of crafts. There's also a touch tunnel where you crawl in the dark feeling different textures.

We love Great Explorations! This is my son's favorite fun spot. Every exhibit will have your children amazed and busy. There are so many hands on things for kids to do. My son attended camp during summer and a couple times when school was out. The teachers are all amazing and Miss Lauren has always been so helpful to my family. Keep up the great job Great Ex!

Big indoor play space with lots of activities and areas to explore. It can get crowded and incredibly loud. Good for younger kids, maybe 2-8.

I took my 4 year old. She seemed to like it but I was disappointed in it. It's much more an activity center than a museum. I understand that children learn from playing but there wasn't enough information for them to learn from. There were not enough staff around to make sure the kids didn't take items from one area to another making it difficult for kids to play in that area. For instance, there is a vet area and a lot of the stuffed animals were in other parts of the museum as well as some of the general exam equipment. There is also a grocery store area which my daughter loved but no one put their items away so it was a big mess with no staff helping to clean up. Most of the "electrical" parts of the stations were not working. The touch tunnel was only open a couple of times during the day and the animal part was just a couple of snakes and lizards that you can see at any pet store. I guess for a few hours getting out of the hot sun it was fine but my daughter didn't learn anything.
