  • We really love this place! Me and my kids. It is cool place for children starting 3-5 years old, depends from your child personality. As well it is cool place for grown up. With open eyes I was watching different exhibits. Last time they have new one with microbes, it is so amazing to watch how microbes move, what shape can they be, through the microscope. Girls-workers willingly explain whereever you wanna know.Museum has free days-Fridays after 2pm and Sunday mornings.
  • It is a great place for kids. I just renewed our family membership today, as the Hall of Science is our choice to hang out with kids, especially when the weather is not so good. It has lots of exhibitions, two outdoor playgrounds, amazing interactive 'Connected worlds' room, various workshops and events. During the last year we were there about 10 times and my 3yo asks me almost every weekend "will we go to our museum today? Please?". The room for improvement for the museum is that some exhibits are broken/don't work properly, but based on my experience it is a "disease" of most childrens museums as, you know, kids destroy everything they can touch. Again, overall experience is very positive, the museum is worth to attend at least a couple of times.
  • This might be the most kid and family friendly museum I've ever been to. Almost every exhibit is hands-on, as interactive semicolons and it is not halfhearted stuff , it is really well-thought-out and engaging , often for both kids and parents. We were here for three or four hours, and I know we missed a lot, because as soon as we walked in , the kids were deeply involved in the first thing they saw. it was also not very crowded, on the early morning that we went , and parking before the parking lot open, got us free parking. I would say we had a better experience here than at the last children's museum we went to which was the Museum of science in Boston. staff here was incredibly attentive and pleasant as well.
  • Huge place with some entertainment and museum for kids emphasis on science. So much to learn, but you must go there in the morning because tickets cost a lot of money and the place is big. Don't forget to get some food from home as cafeteria is also expensive.
  • A great place to bring your young children. Lots of interactive displays, makers sections with various rooms, I think there are a few free admission days during the month. We loved the Connected World activity that teaches about the interaction of water and plants and animals. You can keep busy for a few hours if you want. Definitely on the to do list.
