  • Such a great place to explore! There is something for all ages with about 4 floors of exhibits and each with a different theme. The indoor water play set up was perfect for my 2 year old (Bring extra clothes and shoes)!
  • Amazing place for kids and parents. You can easily spend the day there. There's a ton of different exhibits and activities for all ages. exhibits are kept clean and bathrooms and clean and plentiful. They have single bathrooms as well that are equipped for kids (changing tables, step stools). Would recommend, will be going back.
  • Nice place to visit. My kids seemed to enjoy it. A number of displays and areas had broken or incomplete activities. It is not the cheapest activity you can find but we used a groupon. Parking is convenient but not free.
  • CT Science Center...FAIL! My child was invited to a Birthday Party at the science center. I parked to go drop off my kid. When I got to the "birthday party check-in" desk the employee to us to stay there and we would be brought to the right area. 10 min later no one had showed us to where the bday party room was. Finally we saw another parent who was leaving and they pointed us in the right direction. As I was leaving from dropping off, I asked a different employee if they validated parking tickets for drop offs and was told no. The parking garage charge med $3 for 20 min to drop off for a party! 10 min of the time was b/c the science center employee had no clue of what was going on! This is ridiculous and definitely makes me and I hope others rethink have a birthday party at the CT Science Center due to their penny pinching parents! And what is worse, I'm sure I am going to have to pay again when I go back to pick up!
  • First time visiting Hatford so we decided to go to the museum😊. It is such a nice place for children my 3 yrs old daughter like it a lot! They have a 3d dinosaurs movie fun to watch! A little pricey,but worth the $$$$!
