    Our family had a great time on our visit. We have a almost 4 year old and a 18 month old. The area for small children was great because it was enclosed and very family friendly. The only thing I was s...  more »

    I had been to this museum 5 years ago and I came back with my 8 and 11 years. The Museum is interesting and there's a bit of everything: music workshop, repairs, Hall of broadcasts with the possibility to register an ole mini news weather forecast made by children, bubbles lab, piccini.ci area 3 or 4 hours can pass safely, and it's never too crowded. It was created and is run by a foundation.

    a bit expensive but very clean and educational. My kids loved sand and bubble area. I think those are the most popular places of all.

    I have a two year old. Some of the tables were too high for her to use. The interactive materials were meant for older children (words lit up instead of pictures). Seemed better for children 5 and up. The exhibits were boring and simple -- she was most interested in bubbles, which we can do at home. Compared to the Strong Museum in Rochester (which was the same price), this was half the size, and half the fun.

    A great place to take kids on a cold, rainy, or super hot day. They always have engaging exhibits, and rotate exhibits frequently enough so that kids don't get bored. Is appropriate for a range of ages and abilities.

    It received a well-needed spruce up on parts of the second floor. Worth a revisit. Travelling exhibits keep it interesting for the preteens.
