  • This place gets so much positive mentions I had high expectations. It did not disappoint!! It was so hot and they had plenty of indoor ac to keep us entertained for 4 hours! Planetarium show was mesmerizing, even the elevators were an experience. So much interactive stuff for even a 1.5 year old I can't wait to go back! So much in Miami disappoints for the price... This is not one. I recommend to anyone. My son loved all the aquariums the most.
  • Great for all ages. I went with my nephew (11yo), my niece (8 yo) and my daughter (1 yo). We all had fun! At some point I needed to nurse my daughter and the staff was so nice finding me a private place to nurse her immediately. 5 stars to the staff! Thank you for your kindness!
