  • It has a lot of simple science experiments for kids to enjoy and learn. There were several kids when we went to visit, so their enthusiasm was infectious. Overall, I'd say it's a great place for kids, but not much for adults. Also, if you live in the area, and have a local library membership, you could get free tickets for your family to visit.
  • Not the greatest museum, but a good effort to provide some exposure to history and science for the community. We enjoyed the science section and the traveling Beatles show which was on in May 2017 when we visited.
  • We really enjoyed visiting here. This is a great place to take your kids and have some fun. I highly recommend it. Tons to do and they are very supportive of any questions you might have.
  • Great for young & old alike. Soon can take the younger ones back there. They had a blast because it was so hands on museum.
  • We really enjoyed our visit. Very family friendly.
