- love to visit Great Ex with my daughter. There is always something wonderful going on here for her to enjoy. They have added several new areas recently including an outstanding Publix shopping area, huge climbing/construction tree house, and special exhibits. – OtterKim, lilaguide
- We were there today and had a wonderful experience with our 6, 4, and 3 year old. Many staff members were around and very helpful. The exhibits were great and interactive. Most of them worked well, and our kids didn't want to leave. – buzzzz4, TripAdvisor
Great Explorations Children's Museum
Since opening in 1987, Great Explorations Children's Museum has sparked a love for learning for visitors of all ages with a constantly rotating lineup of interactive exhibits that fill 18,000 square feet with touch, light, and sound. Whether they're learning about nearby sea life at Beth's Beach, honing their knowledge of textures on a crawl through the Touch Tunnel, exploring arachnids in the Critter Cave, or playing instruments in the Musical Magical Treehouse, kids benefit from each exhibit's emphasis on interactivity. Museum guides lead lesson programs in a multidisciplinary style, though visitors can also find the friendly professionals and their orange polo shirts bouncing between exhibits while performing science experiments, dancing, and playing music.
In addition to visiting the museum's permanent exhibits, kids can also extend their learning journeys through the museum's lengthy list of camps and programs. The museum even takes its show on the road, with the Express Yourself Art Mobile bringing creative craft opportunities to neighborhoods around St. Petersburg.
