Our exhibits are not only fun—they’re backed by overwhelming research that says playing is essential! Every time your child visits The ICM, they’re learning through the Power of Play.
Keeping our space safe and family-friendly is important. To enter the museum, your group must include a child aged 12 or younger. Adults with developmental disabilities are also welcome to visit with a caregiver; please inform our staff upon arrival or call in advance if you have any questions.
Due to potential allergies and mess, we do not allow food, coffee, or other beverages in the museum. We have a water fountain available by the art studio on the first floor. Water bottles with a secure lid and baby bottles are welcome.
Coral Ridge Mall has a wide selection of food and drink available for purchase just outside the museum.
We offer free admission and memberships to families in need as part of our ICM for Everyone accessibility programs. Click here to learn more.
Multilingual PLAYologists wear pins that indicate the language(s) they speak. They would love to chat with you! Click here to view translated versions of our outreach materials.
