Fun Things To Do in Miami With Kids 2024

Before I visited Miami, I immediately thought of glitz, glam, fashion and nightlife. It wasn’t necessarily a destination that springs to mind for the family. However, there are lots of things to do in Miami with kids.

Based on the southern point of east coast of America, it has a strong Cuban influence. I feel embarrassed to point that out, but I honestly didn’t know 70% of people in Miami speak Spanish as a first language.

Apart from the bright lights, it felt like we never left Latin America. I hardly heard anyone speak English throughout our time in Miami with kids.

Miami is a big place that needs longer than a few nights to explore properly. Not to mention the surrounding areas. A trip to the Everglades or a Miami to Key West road trip is highly recommended.

There are not many places in the world with a beautiful beach and a fun city side by side. We highly recommend investing in a Miami Go City All-Inclusive Pass so you can see all the great things on offer.

We had decided to stop in Miami on our way to a cruise that left from the Miami Port. If you are doing the same, particularly if you are going to be jet lagged, it is worth allowing some time to explore before your onward journey.

Check out this list of amazing activities as well as hotel recommendations and family-friendly restaurants in Miami with kids.

The Best Kids Activity Miami

1. Frost Museum of Science

Frost Science Museum is one of the top picks amongst local families in Miami. The hotel receptionist suggested Frost Science was one of the best museums in Miami for kids.

There are lots of hands-on learning activities and workshops for kids.

With so much going on, it’s impossible to cover the entire area in one day. The aquarium was a real hit, featuring an impressive amount of species and a beautiful glass viewing tank.

The onsite restaurant can get quite busy but the food is good so is worth visiting for lunch a little earlier than the crowds.

A day at the museum is definitely one of the top Miami kid’s activities especially if you catch some rain on your trip and need some indoor time.

3. Miami Children’s Museum

The Miami Children’s Museum is very unique. It was opened on Watson Island in September 2003. Since then, the museum runs different interactive exhibits and classes related to art, culture and community.

The idea is to get kids interested in learning by making it a fun and playful activity. Learning is not about a particular curricular subject.

Rather kids learn about their culturally diverse community, interaction, communication and other important skills while playing around, participating or just watching the exhibits of the museum.

Some exhibits like Sea and Me and the Ocean Odyssey are very popular among the kids. The exhibit educates about the world of sea creatures in a fun way.

There are also painting exhibits, and mazes like the castle of dreams or Mt MiChiMu where kids can climb.

The museum organizes camps in Spring, Winter and Summer filled with activities for kids in Miami, with options for different age groups.

Families can participate in individual activities and exhibits or sign up for a membership of the museum, which is available online on the official website.

The museum has toddler and mommy classes which aim to make the transition to school as smooth as possible. There is something for all age groups at Miami Childrens Museum.
