  • Cool stuff to do but better venue for families with younger children. Would still go back for some of the rotating exhibits.  more »
  • Something for everyone! You can interact with many of the exhibits, so it's a good place to bring restless kids. They have a special toddler area, musical instruments to play, live animal exhibits (in...  more »
  • We love the museum. My son talks about it for weeks after every time we go. We always find a new thing to play with or explore and it’s always a new experience. So lucky to have this in our town!  more »

  • Second visit, great stuff to see, fun hands on and community areas, fun place for a date. A good mixture of history and current tech/culture. Love the community jam room, though would love more hours and a more fleshed out space. Friendly staff. Relatively cheap. Interesting movie showings upstairs.
  • Great place for kids up through Junior High, and the staff are very friendly. I really appreciated how much effort went into engaging the young kids instead of being a "look but don't touch" museum. Would like to see them expand more in the dinosaur area. Perhaps cover the unattractive warehouse-looking ceiling with a pterodactyl, whale, etc.
  • Great entertainment for the kids, awesome exhibits and fun experiments... however the entire museum is completely open with no walls so if you have more than one toddler it is VERY difficult keeping everyone together, keeping an eye on everyone. The little kid play place is fantastic with a tree clubhouse and water table and trains, however, there is NO latch on the gate to get in so kids can just sneak out.
  • Astounding!!! Went with my 6 year old son and he was so enthralled that after 10 minutes I went back to the front desk and bought the family membership. Every Saturday now he wants to return and he is learning so much. Definitely worth even one visit but now we have a pass for the entire year. Highly recommend!
  • Gr8 fun for kids and adults!! Especially liked the "Let it Snow" show in the dome theatre! Only took one star off cuz seemed like there were many interactive display features that weren't working properly but still a good educational experience!
