  • This is a wonderful, affordable place where kids can have fun for hours—and learn about science, nature and more. And adults will enjoy it too. Child-oriented special activities and exhibits are added...  more »
  • Enough interesting things to do to fill a day, but not so big as to get lost. Great fun for kids of many ages and many interests. If your child doesn't do well with a lot of other noise, call ahead to...  more »
  • We brought all 8 of our kids here last week and they had a blast. It is affordable and kept them busy for a lot longer than I thought. Our kids range in age from 4 to 15, but even the oldest found som...  more »

  • Lovely little museum with lots of fun. I would say it's aimed more for kids 4 or 5 and up, though. They have a fantastic baby/toddler area, and my toddler had a blast with the water table, tree house, and bubbles. However, the upstairs is definitely geared more towards slightly bigger kids. And I should add that there's no tables or areas where you can easily eat a packed lunch in the museum, no food vendors, and not much by way of kid friendly dining close-by.
  • A great hands on place for kids to learn and experience science! It's packed into two floors with something to do in every corner. Drums that beat with your pulse, a pulley system to lift yourself up, a crane to stack blocks, a million different stations to build and create! Enough hands on activities to keep your child entertained for hours and burn energy! You'll be having fun right along side them!
  • This place is great. Absolutely fun for both the young and young at heart. All those interested in exploring the wonderful world of science and technology should check this place out! It is almost too easy to spend too long there.
  • We loved this place! We came down over Christmas break because the kids were getting stir crazy. This place was the cure. There is so much to do! It is also very affordable. $8 per person, and we were able to find free parking. The size is perfect. Often, when we take our young kids to a large museum, we find ourselves rushing from exhibit to exhibit, trying to see it all. In Wonderlab, we took our time, knowing that we could definitely do everything we wanted to in a reasonable amount of time. The kids, 3 and 6 years old, had a total blast. We will be back!
  • Love all of the creative, interactive exhibits. We have a family membership and go to Wonderlab 1-2 times a month in the winter. There are engaging activities for all ages - both the kids and the parents stay entertained!
