  • We didn’t care for this one. Maybe it was the particular exhibits, but for such a large museum, there wasn’t much to see. The particular exhibits (sound and color) we saw we very poor quality...  more »

  • Great place for kids and the hands on learning is enjoyable for them. The place is a bit small, so it doesn’t take much time to cover it all, even with a movie. Staff are friendly and though the gift shop is small, there’s still a decent bit of things for kids to enjoy.
  • I loved it! Saw the Apollo 11 movie. My only complaints are that one of the employees seemed drunk (reeked of alcohol and acted it), and that the endangered/extinct animals exhibit will be going away in October.
  • This is a wonderful place to visit and work. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and is dedicated to create opportunities for children to learn. I especially love bringing my nephew and niece to the two hands-on activity rooms and they both get so excited about being able to explore and play there! This museum offers a great space for school groups to tour and engage in educational classes and activities as well!
  • If been here many of times and I think it's a great way to get educated on things we need to know and want to know.
  • Great place to bring your kids year round.
