    This was our second time here and my kid had fun. He seemed to mostly enjoy the area where they can build stuff with blocks and play with the toys.  more »

    The museum was super cool. There were plenty of things to learn about. It was geared towards anyone interested in any type of science. I love the interaction stations upstairs. If you like learning or science this is definitely a great place to go.

    This museum is one of the best I've been too! A lot of interactive activities for both children and adults. A lot of interesting stuff both in the exhibit and gift shop. The only negative thing I would say is that a few exhibits need a little up keep as they are very outdated. You can spend the whole day here really entertained plus if you're in the mood for a movie the cinema is next door.

    Their website says people stay about 3 to 4 hours, I have a 6 year old and a 16 year old and we were still out in an hour and a half. Gift shop doesn't sell batteries so if you need them for your camera, bring some with you. Their bathrooms were so gross! Toilets plugged, food and trash all over the floor and no toilet paper in 4 out of 6 stalls. Waited almost 10 minutes for air boat adventure and as we were about to get on, the staff member that was there, stated my son could not ride because of his shoulder injury. We were first in line, standing there in front of her face, his arm in a sling but waited until we were getting on the ride to tell us he couldn't ride. Maybe if she hadn't been on her phone! The cost to get in and to park is way to much for what they offer. Will NEVER come back again. Definitely not worth the money!!

    GREAT PLACE... a few $5 per person upsells, which honestly should be included in the price. It's cool for the kids, they do some arts and crafts stuff there as well. It needs to be updated a bit more often, make some things more new. Like the flight simulator.. is not even HD... it's like, you have this amazing machine and can't spring for the 1080 or 4k! All the simulators need updating BIG TIME.

    Nice place but short on good exibits. They have had most of the same things for years. Nice for a one time visit but nothing to keep you coming back. The kids seem to enjoy it though.
