  • What a great asset in Chico. The Gateway is a first rate science museum with awesome activities for children. There are permanent exhibits, including a cool saber cat skeleton but they also have rotating exhibits that change regularly. They always seem to have great hands-on activities and something new every weekend. So, it's a good idea to get one of their very reasonable annual passes so you can visit multiple times through the year to check out what is new!
  • This is a sweet and interactive science museum for kids. It's near downtown and on the bus route. Reasonably priced and kept my 7 year old entertained for a couple hours.
  • A fun place for kids. Our four year old loved the dinosaurs, building blocks, tree house and microscopes the best. Not too large of a museum, but enough to entertain young kids.
  • A very nice museum for a small town, especially within walking distance to downtown.
  • IMPORTANT --- the GOOGLE POSTED HOURS for Gateway Science Museum are NOT CORRECT! The CORRECT OPEN HOURS ARE AS FOLLOWS: Wednesday through Sunday 12 noon - 5pm
