  • The place might seem small when you first walked in, but when you get to each station/exhibit and learn or work on them, it can take some time to do. The time spend depends on how interested you are w...  more »

  • Incredible Experience for Cub and Boy Scouts! If I could give them ten stars for their scouting program I would. We recently took our cub scouts for an overnight at the Science Factory and it was the most wonderful experience. The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. Whenever we needed something or had a question, they were right there and ready to help with smiles on their faces. They also served us a wonderful breakfast and made sure that we were all comfortable and happy. The scout program includes an overnight in the factory, where the children are allowed to camp out wherever they want. The scouts are giving a list of science experiments to complete and they fill out what they learned basically. They then receive a special scouting patch for their achievement in science. It is educational, but also fun. In addition to the science and education requirements, the children are allowed to run, play, explore and experiment at their leisure. This allows the children to discover the wonder of science for themselves and engages them in a fully interactive experience that will delight young minds to no end. Some of the best exhibits include the sound and light stage where children can perform and play, the light and lenses room, the roller coaster building, and so much more. The fun is endless, the learning is enjoyable and the staff is wonderful.
  • This place is awesome for kids and parents. We had so much fun at the science factory.
  • My kids love this place and I think I have as much fun as they do. What a wonderful facility...educational and fun and they have some terrific summer camps .
  • A fun and educational place to go with young hungry minds. The have many fun science-based hands on activiteis
  • For the price point it was fun. Though I was expecting larger. But kids had a lot of fun as almost everything was hands on. They had demonstrations as well. I would say about 2-3 hours of stuff to entertain the kids.

Where to stay in Lancaster
