  • Kids enjoyed it, though it wasn't big. Membership (or in our case ASTC membership) gets you into the museum and the show. Hands on science center with free parking. The large soccer billiards table was neat.
  • This place is not worth the money. Half of the experiments are physically broken and/or worn out, an almost EVERYTHING here that is computer assisted HAD crashed or is broken.
  • Not very sanitary. Every time my child visits this place she always ends up with Strep Throat or just sick with RSV or the Common Cold. It is not a good place to visit regularly for I have found myself going there a lot less now that my child is 5. We started taking her when she was an infant almost weekly sometimes daily, and as the years went on it of course became super lame, and there was so many germs that are clearly inescapable. So now I do not plan on buying another year membership. I also want to mention how sad the New Years Eve event was. Only a handful of kids got a balloon if not more than one (greediness). There were at least 100 or more kids left in the back ground just to watch only a few kids enjoy the event. It was heart breaking to see how many children were disappointed that year. It was also no good to have to pay such an awful turn out.
  • We love going here!! It is always a good time. the kids play for hours, and the adults always learn something. Even the kids to young to understand the exhibits have fun. Everything is interactive, and exhibits change regularly. Need more places like this!!!
  • We had a great time, although it seemed a bit empty, it was very nice. The dome needs an update soon which means people probably need to visit & help raise money for upgrades. All in all it was a very educational experience!
