  • I went here to get the family membership for $50. This is a great deal since we have 5 children. We bought the membership to join the ASTC (association of science and technology centers) since we were going to NY it got us into most of the museums there free or at a reduced rate. While we were there buying our membership my 2 sons 9 and 7 wanted to look at some of the exhibits. I couldn't drag them away from all the cool things there. The theater is great but makes me dizzy. Kids love it though.
  • Very clean and nice museum! The planetarium is very cool!
  • Thoroughly enjoyed the Immersive Theater experience, Rock on Demand. Would love to see an EDM experience presented in the future. Was disappointed to see Evansville people did not come out on a Saturday night to experience the show. Only about 15 people showed up at the showing I attended. I would also like to comment on something that needs some attention on the Museum grounds... very disappointed in the garden in front of the museum. For such a nice building, the front of the buildings plant life is in bad need of attention. It was nothing but a weed garden.
  • Great for kids and rather educational
  • First Friday of the month is free and staff is especially nice
