  • Every other year we buy a membership and as long as we go twice, I feel it's worth it. There are some obvious flaws, but kids don't care - they just have an excellent time. I think the Science Center ...  more »

  • Great family fun. Very educational. Love the science Tesla lab staff..they are the best. Life like space and construction displays. One star removed for lack of parking. Would be nice if they would open a parking structure. You have to park in the streets, if the valet and small lot is full. On the street it's a 2 hour max at 2.00 an hour. I had to run back out, and move my car. Very difficult with 3 small kid's.
  • Needs to be kept up better. A lot of broken things. Entrance is confusing on where you pay etc.
  • I love this place. My students had a blast they are still talking about it
  • 2 adults + 2 kids (2&3); is equivalent to the same prices as going to the zoo. I love how prices are so high on experiences that are suppose to shape the minds of our kids. Sad enough we walked in after paying $7 of parking, and walked right back out after we saw the general admission fees- we could have gone to Sheds aquarium for the same prices. It's absolutely ridiculous, in the sense it's a museum..... Not worth over $80 for 2 toddlers to look around and play for an hour or two.
  • We had our daughter's wedding here at the Science Center. It was the best wedding ever, and the set up was wonderful. Chelsea was our point person and great at helping us organize the event. Kevin created "the stars and sky" in the IMAX to make this wedding special. The dance floor was open to see from the dining area, and the elevator was clear so we danced when going up and down! The IMAX theater was a great place for the ceremony; everyone could see, it was comfortable, and the acoustics were perfect for the musicians. It was definately a night to remember.
