  • Great place for fun and science. We cannot cover this in one day. Has 6 floors of eye candy for all the geeks and kids out there. Has a laser harp which is fun. A parachute which kids can drive. Lots of button based life size toys. Has a roof top garden with a cute dino which makes for a good photo opportunity. Has a gift shop with all the geek stuff and stuffed toys.
  • Our family loves the science center! We have an annual pass and visit several times throughout the year. There are so many things to see and do for all ages and the fact that they bring in new exhibits keeps it worth revisiting. Our kids love all the hands-on displays and the mini workshops - one day we built and learned about paper airplanes, another day we learned how to program Ozobots. The benefit of having the pass makes it easy to really explore different things at each visit and there always seems to be something we haven't seen or done before! Looking forward to our next trip!
  • Very cool place in a very pretty part of Hartford along the river walk. Worth checking out & walking around the city a bit on a beautiful day any time of year.
  • Horrible service! My first time attending today 6/13/16 and every thing was going fine until I was Ganged up and accused by staff and assistant manager of eating in the exhibit! No way would I make a big deal about a rule! But to be accused and having people look at me as if I stole something was the worst experience ever I would not bring my child back and will request my son school to maybe consider Stamford going forward! I'm sure they would treat visitors better! Next time you want approach someone pull them to the side and get your facts! Clearly your staff is underpaid and salty to want to tell lies of me eating when I wasn't the only person holding food in the exhibit! Maybe it's the way I look! Very unprofessional !!!
  • I love museums and this place is wonderful. I was like a little kid in this place. The staff is amazing and service was great.
