Great Explorations Children’s Museum in St Pete

Published on 10/05/20: While St. Petersburg has an abundance of sunny days, we occasionally need indoor activities when tropical showers roll into the area. Fortunately, there are plenty of options for indoor fun! Yesterday, between showers, we made a dash to the Great Explorations Children’s Museum. Located on 4th Street near downtown St. Petersburg.

Great Explorations – lots of fun for Children!

Great Ex provides hours of fun for the young ones, especially those 6 and under. You may notice a blur in some of the pics, that would be our 5 year old racing from one activity to the next. We get it. It’s difficult to choose between a fire station, pizza making area, grocery store, shoreline/beach setup, Legos, HUGE foam building set, couple story tall climbing area, slides, puppet theater, hurricane wind machine and everything else.

You can sign up for annual membership starting at $125/family or pay per visit @ $15/person. Note, at the time of this writing, Great Ex is limiting spots and you must pre-reserve for your fam. #ProTip: if no reservations are available online, arrive soon after the time slot begins and you’ll ‘likely’ be cleared in 15-20 minutes. That’s exactly what we did yesterday and sure enough, at 3:20pm, some of those with reservations didn’t show, making room for our family!

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
