  • I am a teacher and a mother of two. I love Science City! It is great for kids about 2 and up. I love all of the wonderful hands on learning experiences for kids. There are also rooms that seem to change each time we visit. My three year old loves it and I have been with older kids who have loved it just as much. I am so glad I asked for the membership as a family Christmas present instead of oodles of toys.
  • I'm from out-of-town and didn't know this was in Union Station. And signage did nothing to help. The parking garage is mostly reserved for the USPS. nd I didn't like having to walk through the gift shop to enter. I certainly we finally got into the place it was awesome! My 9 yo son had a blast (so did I). There is a great variety of activities and displays and most are interactive. I impressed with the amount of hands-on opportunities. Have fun!
  • Science City is a GREAT time for kids... and I play on half of the stuff myself! The season pass is a must... After just two visits it pays for itself. Science City is just about the perfect size; every time we go there, they have more than we can do in a day. The kids do everything they can handle in one day and then leave remembering that there were at least a few more things they wanted to do. Tons of interactive things, not just stuff to look at.
  • The kids had a great time. We live about 3 hours away. They think it's well worth the car ride and want to go back!
  • Lots of great interactive displays covering many different branches of science. Our little one is a bit young for the educational piece, but thoroughly enjoys the sensory part of yelling into echo chambers, making music, and building with blocks.
