  • My 4yo and 2yo had an amazing time and I found myself wishing I could come back without them so I could stop and learn more too. This museum isn't just a collection of exhibits. It offers a fresh way ...  more »

  • This is definitely a must see place. However the price is a bit high for the majority. We happened to get invited as a family for children that participated in a learning activity held there. Lots of parking for everyone. Indoor stuff galore. But at over $30/ person, it might be something that isn't a regular visit. Many things on main floor as well as second floor. The theater is simply amazing as well
  • It is a pretty interesting place, and there's no lack of hands on experiments to do, but the price is pretty high. There's a kids play area to encourage learning through play, and even adult nights monthly. Pack a lunch though because that cafeteria is going to cost almost as much as getting through the door. Don't forget to check out the theatre for some really cool interactive demonstrations.
  • This is a really fun place! So many cool things to learn, look at and play with! The auditorium shows are very cool too! They have a little cafeteria which has a phone charging station which is nice, especially when you use your phone for photos and such all afternoon. The only complaint I have? I find the prices are a little too high for me to visit more often.
  • I wish they would stop pretending this is a science center. It's a children's play place, and a nice one, but that's all. I have concerns about the area on the second floor where children can dismantle circuits. Electronics made before 2006 all have lead in the solder. Some electronics made after 2006 also still have lead in the solder, but lead is somewhat less common. Children dismantle electronics from before 2006, and electronics of unknown age every day at Spark. I have brought my concerns about children being exposed to lead to Spark staff, but nothing changed. When I was there two days ago, there was a partially dismantled cassette tape recorder on the bench.
  • Great place, everything is new, food is great and healthy, the exhibits are impressive and fun. Some of the materials for the activities are of very good quality, probably that's why the entrance is that expensive. However I went to the zoo and this place the same day and I liked this one better. Love the science stuff. The only downside is the price.
