  • Really neat place. Many interactive activities and plenty of live animals. My kids (3, 5, 6) and I had a wonderful time exploring and learning together. We went in the afternoon which was excellent luck because there had been two field trip groups in the morning that we passed on the way in but then we had the whole place to ourselves for quite awhile! Staff was very friendly and greeted us quite early in our visit to welcome us (in addition to the young women who welcomed us and gave us pointers for navigation at admission). She was very knowledgeable and interacted well with the kids. Later in our visit she invited guests in to handle several of the animals. It was great and we're looking forward to returning soon to purchase a family membership.
  • I'm huge science buff and thought this would be a fun place to take my 3yo girl. I've been to many science museums, I was let down by this one unfortunately.
  • Great place to go on a rainy day! It's small, yet entertaining and educational. We went there with 4 1/2 and 9 year olds and they had a blast. It was interesting for us, adults, as well with all the brain games they have to offer. We could see other families had much fun as well :-) And admission prices are very reasonable. P.S. Just a tip - the hurricane simulator can take 2-3 people, so you don't have to pay for each person separately ( as a response to a complaint in the previous review ;-) ).
  • Spent an hour exploring with my 2 year old. Fun afternoon and nice staff.
  • Amazing. So much fun learning stuff here
