Florida Children’s Museum

Opened in Lakeland on November 4, Florida Children’s Museum is the place for hands-on learning. The museum features 5 galleries (and a 6th one on the way) in 47,800 square feet curated for all children to explore.

Florida Children’s Museum is located in the new Bonnet Springs Park in Lakeland. With two floors of interactive exhibits, your child can spend hours delving into fun learning opportunities. The Museum has something to offer for babies up to children aged 12.

Explore Watermelon Seeds, a vibrant colorful world inspired by the lifecycle of fruit. Here, children under age 6 can grow and develop along with the exhibit space.

Visit City Play, a kid-sized community with role-play at the forefront. Become a firefighter, go shopping in Publix, and so much more.

Take on a challenge in Design Park, using different materials to build the best version by testing and re-designing.

Create your own movie, stop-motion animation, or beat in TBD.

Check the calendar for traveling exhibits or artists in residency in the multi-purpose Black Box Theatre.
