    This is a terrific place for collaborative games children and adults. The first floor is arranged for the smallest game with designers, water, sand, cords, etc. With the second-children are a bit older, but all very interesting, you can sit for hours. We went on a rainy may day, enjoyed and we retired, and two-year-old granddaughter.

    Had to drag the kids out after several hours! Really interesting and lots of interactive exhibits. Kept the 4,8 and 11 year old entertained for a while. Not recommended for teens.  more »

    Our boys (13 & 9) just loved this place. It's wonderfully interactive. The displays are engaging and amusing. It was nice to go somewhere that almost every station was functioning. We wish we had more time to spend here.

    You can almost see the gears turning in their heads as kids engage in the cool exhibits. Great way to spend a couple hours or more with your kids.

    Awesome place I wish I live near to science center . It has activities from 1 year to 10 years kids ..You must go at least once and the wow thing is it's ticket too cheap only $8 . They have different ideas for kids to understand science even if your kids are young they will have at least fun and good time

    Very kid friendly. Lots to do without being over stimulated. Very clean and lots of rest spots for parents. Will return.

    Lots of things for kids to do, from ages 2-99. From live animals to science oriented games, you can easily spend 2-3 hours without ever getting bored. Love the outdoor area to let the kids get some real wiggles out, while the recycle/recreation area lets them reimagine new things out of discarded materials. Well worth the price of admission.
