  • Took our 5 year old and 10 year old grandsons here the week after spring break. The place was very disorganized and needed some tlc. This was probably due to spring break but lots of equipment was not...  more »

  • What an amazing place! Our family visited for the first time this weekend and my girls (3 and 5) had a blast, and so did we as parents. It’s very neat how the museum is in an old building - adds to th...  more »

  • I'm going to be brutally honest because I would hate for someone to travel from out of town and spend 27 bucks on this place. Probably the most filthy place we have ever brought our son. Almost everything was broken, missing parts, and dirty. I understand kids are hard on things but this wasn't like that, it just looked neglected. Even our 4 year old couldn't wait to leave and he was disappointed that nothing worked that he wanted to play with. I was afraid to touch anything and it smelled like a hockey boot. The only thing that impressed me was the giant paint room. I hope that when they finish their renovation things will be better. I would not recommend before then.
  • Honestly one of the greatest places to bring your children, growing up in the city and having had many unique experiences concerning the museum I can say for certain that any child will enjoy going there. Everything from their exhibit about space and their exhibit about the arctic are interactive and fun. The staff is friendly and the museum is constantly doing events that children will enjoy. If you have a spare afternoon and your child is bored bring them here and watch them be amazed and excited to learn.
  • For so much dated and beat up supplies it is still a great place for kids. I'm not much for crowds and the busier it gets the less enjoyable experience I have personally but for the most part you're able to enjoy your time and space. Some exhibits are substantially more fun than others, but that comes with the territory. I have attended birthday parties and the New year's party there, both of which are handled really well. At the end of the day the family pass is affordable and there is enough to do to definitely keep your kid/family busy for a few hours. Staff has always been friendly and helpful when called upon. Parking might be the biggest issue but street parking isn't too far away...not bad on a nice day but really inconvenient on a cold winter day.
  • Great place to take your kids. They have stuff for kids of all ages. Kids 2 to 10 would really enjoy it here. The price is reasonable, two adults and one child was approximately $30 all in. Kids 1 and under are free I believe. The only downside is they have limited parking. If their lot is full they have a sign that says to park on side streets nearby.
  • This is a great place to go on an adventure with the kids. Best for younger kids. Plan to be there for around 2.5 hours. Parking can be tricky, but if you are there on a weekend there is a school parking lot that is available. We noticed that they were hosting birthday parties the day we went and it looked like a great spot for a party. There are two separate rooms designed for parties.
