  • A bit off the beaten path but a fascinating museum with great exhibits Worth the adventure to find it. 
  • It was nice. Several of the interactive activities did not work. I was expecting more history of Iowa though. 
  • Its kind of interesting, and has a lot of interactive exhibits, but it really wasn't that interesting to me. It had polite workers and a fair fee, but I doubt I'd ever go back.

  • I love the science center and am really excited to see what it will look like after the re-design. We visit here all the time and my 2 year old loves it, I'm glad to see it getting more interactive.
  • Absolutely loved coming here today... although I noticed a lot of things were out of order or just not on. Felt like I paid way more than I should have for 1/4 of the things I came in to contact with not to work such as: the microscopes, the "hurricane winds" , the 3d printer those things although my son did not really notice I did.
  • I've been visiting the Putnam since I was a child. The exhibits have always been wonderful and the movies at the iMax are fun. I love the new King Tut exhibit. It was amazing to see the tomb as it was discovered.
  • My kids love the STEM exhibits. It's a lot easier for us to go a little more regularly with the free Putnam Passes at our local libraries!
  • Our kids LOVE the Putnam and ask to go so often!! We love having the Fun Bundle so we can go more regularly.
