We're a nonprofit who has worked closely with this museum in the past to bring projects to their audiences. We've always had fantastic experiences performing at their museum, which was the very first to open their doors and give us a chance. Very enthusiastic workers, beautiful and educational exhibits, and overall an incredible museum!!

MCM is a place where families can play, learn, imagine and create. It brings families together as well as the community. They always have great traveling exhobits and we love their programming. Its not just a museum, its a place to explore your inner child and at the same time connect with your child.

I started volunteering with Miami children's museum in 2009 and it has been an experience I would never forget. The staff at the museum always offer support when needed it the most. They are one of the smartest funniest caring loving staff that I have had the honor to volunteer for . And as for the kids , when visiting MCM there is always something new going on like different mascots, playing with the moon sand, creating painting at the art room . Summer program are amazing you learn while having fun what else would u want ? It's just the perfect place to be .

I have been a volunteer for the Miami Children's Museum for the past two years and my experience has been like no other. From the teachers in the school program to the educators in the exhibits, all the staff here at the museum create a friendly and fun environment for everyone who steps inside. I love working with children, and what better place to volunteer than here. The museum is a place for families to create memories and enjoy their time together. From interactive exhibits to creative art-and-crafts, there's so much to do at the museum, it lets a child's imagination run wild. And knowing you're helping a family and their children have a great time is such an amazing feeling. Being a volunteer for the Miami Children's Museum has been an experience I cherish everyday. I recommend this museum to every family who wishes to experience an amazing and unforgettable time.

I had friends from Charleston, SC in town and they spent a rainy day at the museum with their kids. That night I was told that ours was the best Childrens Museum they had visited! I was so curious that I took my next visitors with kids there along with my new little boy, that was in 2008 and since then I have had my boy in the school there, have participated in committees and joined the board! It is a wonderful part of the community and they have the best events for adults and kids alike! Staff is attentive and the facilty and programs are impressive!

The Miami Children's Museum is my favorite place to volunteer at, because there is no were else where i feel more confortable or at home. The staff is tremendous and always available if ever I had a question. The teachers were great, both with the children and the volunteers. I volunteer at the museum every summer I can. It is not only because i love children, but because I could never enjoy myself in any other place. The unique experience that takes place at the museum is life changing, and always will be, because creativity flows from everywhere, and your imagination can take flight. Whether a child of six, or a full fledged adult, the museum is a place were both parent and child can experience happiness, creativity, and fun alltogether. I would and constantly find myself recommending the Miami Children's Museum, and will forever do so, because there is no place like MCM, and no mascot like MiChiMu. I made life lasting friends there, had unforgettable experiences there, and will forever love the Miami Children's Museum.

The Miami Children's Museum is a wonderful cultural institution for our city. From the time I first took my daughter there, it was always a welcomed outting and one that she looked forward to each and every time. The same sentiment holds true for my son. The changing exhibits have been great and fortunately for us, spot on with my children's interest. I've hosted two birthday parties at the Museum and it's always been far better than hosting 3o kids at a padded play zone party. We are fortunate to have a children's museum and I look forward to continuing to support it for years going forward.

The Miami Children's Museum is a wonderful place to take your family. It offers children many ways to stay occupied and stimulated through hands on play. From the rock wall to the new Summer Games exhibit, the museum will provide you with a memorable experience.

Miami Children's Museum is truly a magical place. My family loves going to the Museum and seeing what new exhibit or program they have going on. I would recommend the Museum to all families that have children 8 years and under-you won't be disappointed!

MCM has been part of my children's life since they were 6 months old and they took their first music class. Those memories will lasts forever. Uplifting - entertaining- educational -fun - diverse - evolving - hands on - accessible -- are a few words that come to mind to describe it. A true asset to our community. Don't miss the yearly Countdown to the New Year Party just for kids!
