  • We focused on the dinosaurs since that was the interest of our 4 and 6 year old kiddoes. But the IMAX theater had great shows available and we took advantage of that offering. There is also a snack ba...  read more »
  • There is a lot to see and many hands on activities. With the wide varity of displays there is something for all ages. Becoming a member and being able to get in early is a great benefit. 
  • Wonderful learning museum for people of ALL ages!! Top notch for sure. It was our first visit and both us as parents and our 4 year old really enjoyed it. We will definitely go again next visit becaus...  read more »
  • We expected to pay at least $40 for parking and admission, which is fine I guess. The museum was cool, the exhibits were interesting and the staff was nice.We went to eat and it was ridiculously overpriced. I'm not usually a picky person, but my college cafeteria had better quality food. There were only 3 of us, and we ended up spending $45 for our food and drinks. For a comparison, our bill at In-n-Out was $28, it was a higher quality, and there were 4 of us instead of 3. Anyways, we ended up spending $97 at the museum, and that doesn't include things from the gift shop. So if you're planning on going, make sure you eat before or be prepared to spend twice as much as you should on some not-so-good food and drinks.
  • Huge science museum with hands-on activities for young and old. It has 5 or 6 floors each with a different theme (engineering, human body, etc) with interactive displays and fun activities. It also has a kids section at the bottom floor. The food is not overly expensive like other venues. Buy the membership and support your local science museum.
  • This is a great museum and I'd love to give it 5 stars however there are some pretty big things I'd like to see figured out first! Pros: good location, no getting lost to get here, good parking very near the museum, exhibits are very engaging, frequent churn of new exhibits for viewing, cool events and parties for members, I love member hours (especially Saturday the busy day), seems like there is always something we missed so we go often! Cons: parking lot gets full very fast so arrive at 8:30 on the spot if you are a member, the standinf exhibits never change which is disappointing, the exhibits that change out are very tiny! Not worth the money if you are a non-member and lastly there is so much packed in each space I wish it was a bit bigger so it didn't feel so crowded.
  • This place was "A-Okay." The check-in process was hectic and very unorganized! I can only hope the individuals working the ticket area were doing it as volunteers, if not, this could be great area to focus on process improvement. The fee to enter (basic package) was $19. At that price point, you would sort of expected a coat/bag check, but nothing like that was available. The art museum (just down the street) offers this amenity with no entrance fee! I have been to quite a few science museums in several metropolitan cities. From an architectural perspective, this building is at the top! Such a neat design and nice layout to the building. Content-wise... really geared towards kids. At other science museums, there was a nice balance. Not here. A great place to go with the family, but if you are two visiting adults, stay around the art museum area.
  • This is the way a Science museum should be! Every exhibit takes in mind both children and adults. They make exhibits that are fun for both! The bottom floor you can race some of the fastest people and animals throughout history and even see how you hit a ball using a slow motion camera! If this doesn't bring you in, how about learning everything you could about animals, the human body, and earth. If you teach 7th grade or are in 7th grade or have a kid in 7th grade, this museum is their science book from cover to cover--trust me I teach it! Mr. Perot, I am sorry you didn't become president, but you make one hell of a Science museum!
