The museum is now located across from haven site by the old Hooters. It is about half the size it was pre-storms but just as educational and fun. Great value. So glad to have something like it back on the island. Perfect for ages 3-8....More

The children's museum is conveniently located in the middle of the shopping area and close to both cruise ship terminals. Admittance is inexpensive and your children will find plenty of activities to occupy themselves. The staff is enthusiastic and there is AIR-CONDITIONING!
