  • My kids loved this place. I enjoyed the Titanic exhibit and the star gazing classes given by a knowledgeable young University student. A great addition to a trip up signal Hill. Be sure to check out all of the hiking trails outside of the building as well.
  • Staff was passionate in sharing their knowledge of the area/ geology. It was a great experience and I really enjoyed the exhibits!
  • Great place to go with your family. Lots of information to take in! And some very informative talks.
  • Very interesting exhibits. We should have stayed longer but our brains started to hurt.
  • Simply displayed history of planet and people. Reasonably priced gift shop.
