  • I highly recommend this museum. My kids were enthralled by it. They really loved building the dam and the sand contour box. So much to do. Wet or dry day fun.  more »

  • A wonderful place that we brought my 2 yr old to. We spent about 3 hours there and had a fun time. I suggest bringing extra clothes though because they have 2 water stations that kid naturally gravitate to so it's hard to keep them dry. Overall, it's a great place and we will be going back!
  • We love the Sciencenter. Been there a few times as a family. My daughter is 2 and my son is 8 and there is plenty of stuff there for both of them. Lots of hands-on and such a diverse array the different subsets of science. There's plenty for everyone. If you have children, this place is a must and I guarantee you that you, as an adult, can learn plenty too.
  • We just love coming to the Sciencenter! It is a great place to take a kid of any age. There's plenty to see and do. I love the small animal encounters, toddler play area and the special exhibits. My sister n always has a great time when he visits. Great for any season as well!
  • My husband and our 16 month old had a blast. We were there for about 3 hours and probably could have stayed longer. It's fun for the entire family.
  • A real treasure in the Ithaca, ny community. Applied science exhibits for the very young and the young at heart. It is not just a rainy day activity, member passes make this hands on museum accessible.
