  • Took my grandson more than once. Great time every time we go. Highly recommend this place for family. 
  • This place is very neat! We are adults, our child is at home, but we still had a ball! A lot of crowd, so get there early! But if we came back to hot springs we would go back. 
  • I loved this museum! There was so much to see, and everything was hands on learning. It was a great, interesting, learning afternoon! 
  • Really fun to walk through as an adult. Last time I came, I was a kid. The exhibits are just as fun as an adult. I liked crawling through the mine caves and the orange plastic cave thing. The ice from the air thing is cool and then you can make things black in front of the thermal camera. The new (to me) double deck nature trail is awesome. Great value at $10 for adults (at the time of writing).
  • This has been the best science museum I have been to in years. Very well run, fascinating interactive displays, whimsical inventions, friendly staff, and wonderful facilities. Highly recommend taking the kids. Great a reciprocal membership.
  • We went there on a rainy day in Hots Springs. It was wondeful. My 3 teenage children loved it. They said they felt like little kids again. We stayed until the place closed down. DON'T MISS THIS.
  • It had been some time since I was last here. Let me tell you it has gotten even better! Such an awesome place for the kids and the kids in you. Make sure you check out the tree houses outside!
  • This is one of the best museums I've ever been to. It's woodsy and modern. It's educational and exciting. The interactive exhibits thrilled our family!
