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!!

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.

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.
