  • Lithia Park on a sunny day is hard to beat, but if you are in Ashland with a child on an inclement day, there is NO BETTER PLACE to be than here. My advice: Forget about seeing everything on offer her...  more »
  • Affordable family fun. My daughter loves this place. We stayed there for half the day and she didn't want to leave. With all the smoke from the fires, Ashland has this place to keep the kids busy.  more »
  • This is a very interactive experience. The bubble exhibit was the best. Some of the areas were closed or not functioning but there was plenty to do. Kids love this place.  more »

  • I love this place! It's fascinating, fun, educational, and great for kids, parents, and grandparents. There is so much to do and I live that each display or play area has scientific explanations so you can understand what is happening ... besides pure fun! Definitely check out the scream booth and the shadow room, but give yourself lots of time to see--and play--with everything. And I'm not just referring to kids playing! This grandmother had just as much fun as my grandkids ... maybe more!
  • What a great place this is. Many, many hands on displays where you can experiance the effects of wind, sound, electricity, visual phenomena, and play areas that are just plain fun. Great place for kids and adults alike. You can spend hours here!
  • Amazing place! Have taken my little ones here many times. All kinds of fun activities and hands in learning opportunities, great way to for children to learn and have fun
  • Very cool hands-on stuff for kids. They had kids building little towns out of cardboard as a project when I was there. Nice exhibits that are entertaining and intrigue children.
  • The surroundings are not maintained. Some exhibits do not work. The inside looks like stalled work in progress. Unfortunately... I would not pay to see. My grandchildren loved it, ages 11, 9, and 6.
