  • This is one of the bigger Science Centers that I've visited. There is something new and excited to do for kids of all ages. My 12 month old and 5 year old had lots of fun exploring the different...  more »
  • Had a blast here yesterday on a date! Even though it’s mostly for kids, adults can still have a fun time too! Lots of activities and games for all to enjoy. I would recommend seeing an imax film while your here. Best experience in my opinion if you haven’t already. Could spend the whole day here easily with family and friends where it can be filled with fun and actioned packed events here at the science center!
  • We've been taking our son here since he was few months old. He's 4 now, and he still loves going there. They keep the content and displays fresh and updated on a regular basis. It's even educational and entertaining for the parents. Definitely a great place to take the kids for some indoor learning fun.
  • Always a fun place to visit in the city. First time bringing my kid and she had a blast. Not as many kid themed areas as I remember during my childhood but enough to entertain for at least 2 hours. Went early on a weekday hoping to beat the crowd but unfortunately didn't anticipate all the school field trips. Gets crazy fast but the field trips tend to move through quickly.
  • Really interesting place. You want to do a family activity with children of different ages? Say no more! They have a lot of activities for children and all the family learn a lot while having fun. I will definitely go back again.
  • Interesting exhibits but I am not sure how often they are updated. Great place to go with kids! My daughter loves the playground area where she can explore multiple aspects of science while playing.
