  • We went today on a whim. It was a rainy day and our last day in the area so we figured why not. It cost $20 for my husband and I with military discount, and we spent about 2 hours there. We're kids at...  more »

  • Great place for all ages-- had my 3 and half year old and my 1 year old there and they didn't want to leave. We still didn't do everything because they spent a lot of time on some areas. Loved it.
  • I took my eight month old son and six year old nephew, and they had so much fun. There are so many interactive exhibits where kids can build, play and learn. I wasn't sure how good this place would be, but we spent half a day here and I would recommend it to anyone with kids. The staff are really nice. The only downfall is that they only sell popcorn and candy for food. We were hoping to eat a meal while we were here and had to settle for snacks.
  • Great for kids to play - on the ground floor is a decent-sized play area with lots of toys and foam building blocks. The rest of the floors have various interactive exhibits for them to enjoy. A yearly membership is quite reasonable - around $80 for a family of 4 & 1 guest.
  • Affordable and fun!!! Plenty of interactive exhibits, which makes for an enjoyable experience. The staff are attentive and personable. There's always something new and interesting going on. Always a good time here!!!
  • I was very disappointed that the Science Museum decided to offer discounts/special rates to only people living within certain zip codes. What's wrong with everyone else in all the other zip codes! I really think this is unfair, discriminatory and shouldn't be allowed. I think you should reconsider.
