The Miami Children’s Museum was opened in 1983 as an education center designed to encourage children to explore and create. The non-profit enterprise offers classes and interactive exhibits on a variety of topics in addition to the permanent exhibits that children can explore and enjoy. Dedicated to serving their unique community, the Miami Children’s Museum is almost fully bilingual.
Things to See and Do
- The exhibits focus on making learning fun and offering a creative outlet where kids can explore possible professions. Children can play in a pretend fishing boat, veterinarian area, construction zone, grocery store, dentist’s office, bank, and a doctor’s office.
- Each room has a different theme with opportunities to play and learn. For the more active kids there is a challenging rock wall which kids can climb for an additional fee and a two-story sand castle is the perfect place to use up extra energy.
