    Great for younger children, especially when too hot or wet outside. Our eight year old was on the higher end of age-appropriated even though the museum suggests up to ten. Our biggest gripe though was that many of the activities were out of order. Still, under the right circumstances, a great way to entertain the kids when needing to kill a few hours.

    We took our kids here (nearly 3 & a 5 year old). We mistakenly thought one and a half hours would be enough, but we really needed more time to get the full experience. Our kids had a blast and didn’t want to leave, there’s plenty of things for them to do and let their imagination take over, better than any video game can provide for them. There’s also a nice green park just outside the museum to walk around.

    Took my grandson there because he wanted to see the dinosaurs. I never saw such a letdown. Even he said it was an “awful waste of money and very disappointing”. What the museum called touchable dinosaurs were three hard plastic figures. A dino recording sounded more like a tooth extraction. The dig was dirty mulch of some sort. My grandson, not the finicky type, wouldn’t go in. The Land of Fire and Ice was misnamed and truly disappointing. For that amount we could have gone to Dinosaur World in Plant City and had a better time with over 100 lifelike dinos, some of which were animatronic, and all of which were realistic.

    We happened to wander to the downtown area and noticed that the museum wasn’t terribly busy so I decied to take the kids in about a week later. The museum puts any field trips or tours, parties, etc they have scheduled on their Facebook page so you are aware of the possible crowds. The day we went there was a field trip but it still was great. We opted for the annual passes because for $20.00 a year per person, why not?!?! This gives us the option to go when we want and not have to plan on it. It also allows us to come and go as often as we would like to avoid the rushing of everyone else. I took a 3 yr old, 4 yr old, 9 yr old, 11 yr old, and 12 yr old. While most of it was geared towards the younger kids, in y opinion, the older kids played along and it was great. We will definitely be going back!! The museum also offers different events through the year that memebers can attend for free. Very clean also.

    I went there for an event called ‘Craftology.’ Ran into some very nice people from Bradenton, but other than that, some really rude people.The staff that worked the event appeared to be nice. Still not exactly sure why they named it after Glazer (he only donated $5 million, considering how much this guy makes, its peanuts!)
