  • I took a bunch of Girl Scouts to the museum to learn about robots & what they do. We also explored beforehand. The crew was super helpful & courteous. Audrey was amazing for answering all my questions, no matter how many or how self-explanatory. My girls had a great time and I can't wait to arrange another field trip!
  • It's been several years since I've visited the museum and there are quite a few new exhibits. The light bridge is also very cool! Great place to spend a day with kids of all ages.
  • This is a fabulous museum near Hot Springs, Ar. Although geared for kids "hands on experiences, my retired wife and I loved it at 69! Walk, look, touch, smell, listen and learn! Hundreds of exhibits. Highly recommended!
  • My husband and I had a blast. We kept wishing the kids were with us even though we were on our first ever "just us, no kids" long weekend trip. We can't wait to go back with the kids.
  • The exhibits are good, but the knowledgeable and passionate staff is the real reason to visit. They love what they do, and they love answering questions. Great with kids, too. đź‘Ť
