  • Seriously disappointed... I came here last year for my daughter's spring break and had so much fun. I remember all the activites we did and spend at least two hours here. But this year it seams like they ran out of budget. All the fun activities we remember doing are gone. There is nothing to do. And its spring break! Got bored after 10 minutes and it cost $27...
  • Bottom line, if you don't go with a school group or on a Saturday, it's not worth going. If you aren't going with a group, it's not very fun. The Mars exhibit is only open on Saturday. Unless your with a group I'm sure. We got there during the tail end of a school group. We got to see what they were doing and it looked fun.... But we couldn't participate... We did get lucky and one of the volunteers that were going to leave, stayed and showed us the planet sphere. That was cool. The place is small, the isn't a lot to do, but the people there (when they are there) have some interesting information. If you go, go with a scheduled group.
  • Not much to do. Kids got bored after 10 minutes. $10 for an adult to supervise their kids is definitely high.
  • I have small kids and they really had fun. But it would make more sense to turn the children's farmers market into interactive rocket ship replicas with periscopes and dials to incite the kids imagination of space. The thrift stores don't really match the museum.
  • Great place! My little ones loved the super kids traveling exhibit and could have stayed all day. My older children were fascinated by the information and interactive exhibits. They loved the scavenger hunt as well. The open floor plan made it easy to keep an eye on everyone. The straw rockets blast off was a favorite for everyone!
