  • This is a first-rate science center that could match any large city science center. There are lots of hands-on things to do for the whole family, including grandparents. So allow lots of time to explo...  more »
  • Every time we visit there are always a lot of exhibits that have not been taken care of and broken. The planets exhibit upstairs is very cool, but beyond that we won't spend the money to go back.  more »
  • I wasn't expecting too much from Science Central. I anticipated a smaller museum with some hands on activities and that was what was delivered. As usual for some older museums, some of the exhibits ne...  more »

  • We've visited Science Central several times over the past 3 years. Our children are 6 & 4. Their favorite activity is the water table. It is a little small and could be updated but they still love it. They also love the animal section. They have a ton of rocks and fossils to look at. The other activities are hit or miss. Some are great but others are outdated. The solar system theater is nice and updated. There isn't much to see in the bottom level but they do change out the one room every couple months which is really nice. Overall it took us a little over an hour to see everything.
  • I have to say Science Central was one of my favorite places.Very educational! You will learn alot! But there Spring Break Hours I don't like. I kind of wish there hours would not change so much.Over Spring Break they change almost the whole week. It gets a little confusing sometimes. But other wise I love this place!!👍
  • Very unique place. The exhibits change and the kids love the snakes! Great place to hold a birthday party for kids. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly.
  • Fun and educational. Science Central offers yearly membership which are a great value. Host a party birthday there for a unique and fun experience for the kids!
  • We visited for the first time last week with my 3.5 and 2.5 year old, and they seemed to really enjoy themselves, especially at the water table. I liked that there was a designated area for children under 7 to run around and play. They were too small to really appreicate/interact with most of the exhibits though. All around it wasnt bad for the price.
