  • Wow! Learn about power in a power plant ... that has bees and an interactive floating ping pong ball exhibit and many many more. Fun times to be here. Also, a swinging bridge outside over the Animas River.
  • Great for kids. Lots of fun puzzles to play with. Thought it was a little small though.
  • Loads of fun for kids. Probably some of the best interactive exhibits I've seen.
  • Super cool, family friendly place. Lots of events and fun exhibits - even fun for nerdy adults :)
  • PROS Some interesting exhibits. CONS: Half the exhibits need maintenance.
