Rylan's Review:
    Holy cow - do I love this place! I think this is one of my all-time favorites. I loved dressing up in firefighter jackets and boots and learning what to do in an emergency and how important it is to have a plan at your own house in case there is a fire.

Mom's Notes:

    Great Explorations is regularly rated one of the top museums for children in Florida, and we couldn't agree more! We spent an entire day playing with all of the interactive exhibits. Some of our favorites included: I Can Construct, which teaches you all about building and careers in construction, while you're spending time up high in their giant tree house. Then there is The Veterinary Office: Be a Great Pet Vet, where they teach you the importance of medical care for your pets and you get to conduct examinations on stuffed animals. Also fun for the kids is St. Pizza, where you get to take orders, 'bake' pizzas, use a real cash register and wait on customers. Robot Lab had us learning about power sources and creating a moving robot.
    This amazing museum allows you to have your child's birthday party there or even rent the entire museum for a private party before hours. They also hold week long summer camps for kids 5 to 11 years old and teach you about dinosaurs, Dr. Seuss or astronomy and how to protect the planet. We had such a fun day we had to drag the kids away by promising we'd return soon.
