  • The kids love this museum. We used to have a membership and came here all the time. A great value btw. 
  • This place was pretty small. I live in a small city, and our children's museum is 3-4x bigger than this place. I like the build a race car stuff, and the building bricks was cool. Certainly a fun plac...  more »

  • The price does not justify the trip however they do have Groupon and other offers so that helps. It was overrun by several field trip groups when we went this summer making it tough for my kids to play with the equipment. They have a HUGE space but it is used poorly with half of it empty. It's basically one big room with stuff because the upstairs floors are empty minus one area to do some computer game that isn't explained. The carpet was really dirty when my infant was crawling on it. It's a shame because STEM stuff is so big right now and there's so much potential here but it misses big time.
  • Great place for kids to go to a science/physics type learning interactive museum. They also have great camps for the kids to attend.
  • Such a fun place to go (for adults and kids)! They make learning fun and memorable. You can host events and parties here, which is SO much more fun and unique than the typical boring options.
  • This is a wonderful location to visit with kids to explore an wide assortment of STEM activities. They've got gravity race track where you can build various wheeled vehicles and see how your creation stacks up against others.
  • My kids were amazed that they could touch and play with everything they saw! From building cars to destroying walls, we never had a dull moment and spent way more time there than we anticipated. Prices are on target with similar places/features.
