  • I brought my nephew and nieces there (ages 16, 10 and 6). Everyone loved it. Lots of hands on activities, interesting exhibits and the planetarium was awesome. Kudos to the gentleman who hosts the planetarium shows, he allows for Q&A after and he handled all the questions, from adults to toddlers, with equal interest and detail.
  • Good experience for an older kid, but there should be more activities for younger children. Newer things would be nice as well.
  • Nice museum with a lot of interactive children's activities. There is also a great rotating exhibit. We didn't get to do the adventure center or trails but look forward to getting to them when we return.
  • They have rotating exhibits. They have a grant to expand the museum and they have great exhibits, such as an outdoor tree climbing exhibit. I will be back!
  • Very disappointed with the museum. Used to bring my charges there when I was a nanny. It was really fun and there were lots of hands-on exhibits to keep the kids busy for hours. Took my kids today and aside from the Planetarium which was interesting and fun, the place was dirty, with many broken exhibits and nothing much for the kids to play with. The few interactive areas were either missing pieces or completely broken and unusable. The Guitar exhibit was interesting for the adults, but the kids could care less about it as there was nothing for them to touch, everything was behind plastic cases. I bought a membership planning on taking my kids there often but it this is all there is, it was money wasted.
