  • Science City is fun for all ages. The parents and grand-parents appear to be having as much fun as the kids as all interact with the exhibits. The varied offerings make it likely that everyone can fin...  more »
  • This place was amazing for our young kids. (2, 4 and 6). They had so much fun. Even if we didn't read everything the interactions and science experiments were so fun. They literally could not stop goi...  more »
  • Lots of stuff for kids to enjoy, and most of it has at least some educational value. Our 5 year-old played for nearly two hours and was never bored.  more »

  • Science city is fantastic for the 4-12 range. Smaller kids will spend an hour digging in the dinosaur bones or stacking giant foam blocks to build a castle. For bigger kids you can get through Science City in 2-3 hours, and spend a few minutes doing everything that is inside. Snake feedings happen on Friday, so that's a great day to go for your nature lover! (Or not, if your nature lover is terrified of snakes I guess.)
  • I took my third grade students here on a field trip and WOW pretty much sums up our experience! Right from the beginning I was impressed. The tour guides explained to the kids the expectations and then took us to the entrance of Science City. As soon as you enter, the hands-on interactive learning began. The students loved it! They were learning and didn't even know it because they were having so much fun. As an adult, I liked it so much too-it made me feel like a kid again. Excellent, clean environment with so much to do! We'll be back.
  • 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!
  • A long-time great place for family fun and learning new and interesting things. My kids still enjoy going there even though we go a few times a year. They change exhibits occasionally, but it's mostly the same familiar things. However, that doesn't keep us from having fun every time. Union Station is a really neat place and we all like walking over to Crown Center to explore. The Union Station membership has a ton of reciprocals around the Midwest, so it can be a great value for family vacations. We've got into at least 8 different places (Omaha, Des Moines, Colorado) for free with the membership!
  • 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.
