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.

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.

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.

Not the best. I had free admission from a membership sharing opportunity with the Florida Aquarium, and I still felt like it was only mediocre. If I had paid for admission I would have felt ripped off. There are very few actual activities for the kids... save money and go to a park.

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!

This was pretty cool for a children's museum. Lots of play areas and sections for the kids to place. I don't know what really makes it a "museum" per se, but there are some pseudo educational activities built in such as grocery shopping and some sciency areas with building and such. I particularly liked the stage are with performances that encouraged interactivity and music. The indoor tree-house was of course a big hit with all the age groups. While I didn't see any specific cleanliness issues, I also didn't see a whole lot of effort in sanitizing or cleaning options either. Something to bear in mind.

I have been going here all my life and I love it. It is good they they keep classic things like the treehouse, but also put in new exhibits.
