  • Our 3 year old absolutely loved it! There is a ton of stuff for kids to do and it's fun and easy to engage parents in the play areas as well. The café is pretty expensive for what you get; I wouldn't plan on eating there again but the food was decent. Biggest knock to it is a few of the toys/exhibits need maintenance. We had a really great time here and we'd love to take our son again.
  • Everyone pays, even seniors. A family of 4 (2 adults 2 kids) will spend a little under $50 just to walk through the door. That being said, the kids LOVED this place! We spent over 4 hrs here and we didn't get to everything. There's a baby area for those not walking yet, and there's activities for making/building things for older kids. There's also a cafe area, not sure if they serve food or its just an eating area. Finally, the giant in the middle is functional. The kids can climb inside, we didn't realize this until the end. We wanted to pay inside the giant longer. LOTS of fun.
  • It was great!!!! We did all sorts or fun stuff! It's a great place to go! Although it took a long time to get there. It was worth it.
  • Very disappointing. Maybe okay for kid under 6, but there wasn't much interesting to our 9 year old. And a lot of activities were closed during our visit. The atrium "features" a 3 storey-tall model of a boy seated on the floor. It's fine from the front. In the back it's open so you can see inside the body, and it has paths where children can play. Worst thing was inside the head where you see the backs of the boy's eyeballs and facial muscles. There's a zapping sound which repeats every few seconds, I guess to represent electrical connections in the brain. Honestly I found it tasteless and disturbing, and I am not easily disgusted. Best thing was a section on firefighters with an engine kids can enter, clothes they can wear, and also there's a video question game where 3 people can compete on escaping a house fire.
  • The kids loved it. Looking around and seeing all the trash and dust off. The floors let's me know that they do not clean like they should. If I could post pictures I would. Not worth the money. If the outside is as dirty as it was I can only imagine the kitchen area. This was suppose to been part of our family vacation. Will not be coming back.
