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 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.

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!
