My first time here and I was greeted by a bunch of smiling faces and cheerful hellos. The museum itself was very informative but had a lot of fun hands-on activities to keep the kids entertained. Overall great experience.

I brought my mother as she received a star for her 100th birthday. Your staff went above and beyond their call of duty to make our visit not only enjoyable but also informative. It was all worthwhile to see the smile on my mother's face.

We love our science museum and the new improvements. We are very grateful it is part of our community! Our kids loved it and now our grand kids look forward to a summer program every year they come for a week, and when their Mom and Dad come to get them they love to take them there and show them all that they did and learned. A place worthy of our support!

The entire family loved the SFSM. The staff were super nice and courteous. We loved the new sphere and of course, all of the exhibits! We cant wait for the new expansion to be complete so we can return!

We have been members for 3 years and my sons love the museum. Yes, it is older - but the kids enjoy seeing the new, rotating exhibits as well as working with the brainteasers and checking out the aquarium. We also love the Nights at the Museum events!

The South Florida Museum has very educational and interesting tours for the teens I work. They also enjoy the tours and their comments where that was really cool and fascinating.

My kids, now 5 & 7, love this museum. It is small, but packed with interactive exhibits that let the kids touch, feel, and even dance. I always learn something myself when we go. Best of all for our family, a visit doesn't take all day. So we have a very laid-back, fun time. The building won't compare with the quality of the larger museums in the area. So if you need this it won't be for you. But if you and your kids like to learn and figure out cool things, then by all means, plan a visit.

Pros: Right size - no one gets tired and cranky

The museum is moldy, smelly and over priced for what they have. For a much better time go to the Museum of Discovery in Fort Lauderdale. Way better place.

This museum is very small. They have different exhibits that are there for a certain period. We always like to go for the dinosaur one and the brain games one. After that, there isn't much to do. The planetarium is really cool. They also have some interesting fish in their tanks. There are definately some good things to see, but it's certainly not a full day outing.

Okay, there's very little there. You can get through this museum in 18 minutes... we did. We went with a 2 year old, but going with an older child might be more worthwhile.

Thye have laser light shows which sound like fun, but we didn't go at a time when one was showing.

Here is yet another place my sons enjoy going to. They love to view the fish and the ever changing exhibits. Staff is wonderful and very helpful. My youngest son loves when they take out the starfish or other fish from the tank so he can touch them.

It's also great for mom's and dad's. The planetarium is wonderful! Brings back fond memories of my childhood.
