  • Lots of great fun with learning tools I think i had as much fun as the 9 year old did We got there about 12:30 and were having fun all the way until closing time at 4
  • This is the most amazing place with the most current up-to-date technology to share
  • Very clean and spacious museum. Staff was very friendly and helpful. My son and nephew enjoyed several stations here, but they wish it had more. They enjoyed building and racing their own cars the most. I recommend you visit, but just know it's not as big as most science museums.
  • Incredible! The world needs more science education! Long live the Hill Country Science Mill!
  • Definitely worth the drive. My wife says it's better than the Thinkery. She says that the Thinkery is geared toward smaller kids, but the Science Mill is better for older kids. I would say it's good for about 7 years old and up, discussion of science concepts etc. Well worth the Hill Country drive, and hit Dairy Queen on the way out for a great family day.
