  • A wonderful hands-on place with exhibits for young kids where they can examine science in the form of games and play to their heart's content. My kids didn't want to leave! If you live in the area, a family membership is entirely worth purchasing, as 3 visits within the year will be cost saving. Further more, the membership gives free access to hundreds of other museums in the country. This place is a must-visit if you have young kids!
  • This city has science! And it's much bigger on the inside than it looks like on the outside (hmmm, sounds familiar). There is more here to do than you expect so make sure you set aside enough time to see it all. We didn't and we will have to go back -- not that that's a bad thing. Entrance price was reasonable, and there were activities for kids of all ages. Both a 2 year old and an 8 year old were entertained at the same place so that's saying something. It was a little crowded at a few stations, so if you can schedule it during a week day it'd probably be better than the Saturday we were there. But hey...if you don't like people, don't come to Kansas City. Or any city...but I digress. I would even argue fairly strongly that it is better than the excellent science center in that red colored arch covered city that we do not name over on the other side of the state. Check out Science City--it's edutainment at it's best.
  • My wife, son, and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. There were unfortunately a number summer camp groups (which could be disruptive at times). On the whole, however, it was very informative and entertaining for both children and adults. We would definitely visit again.
  • Best place to go in KC for kids. It will not cost you as NEARLY as much as the San Francisco Exploratory. Best deal is to get the annual pass of Union Station. They have something to do for all ages: from train operations to water engineering and dinosaurs artifacts. Lots of hands on exhibits to keep your little ones busy and excited. No food or drinks available in Science City but there are few places in Union Station itself. Members get 10% off and other stuff is free access. Its worth the drive.
  • Very kid friendly. There's enough activities to definitely wear them out! The dinosaur exhibit was interesting too.
