  • Be ready to do some climbing of stairs and chasing your kids! So much to do and see, make sure you have plenty of time for them to enjoy it all. 
  • Visited the museum while on vacation with our kids ages 4 and 6. The price felt a touch steep at first but after staying 2.5 hours it didn't seem too bad after all. The place was very clean and modern...  read more »
  • Visited with a two year and had a very good two hours or so. The best part was the water feature area. Also there was a car where the wheels could be taken off. Also a ball game. 
  • Love this place! It is really sad that they increased their prices so dramatically they priced out most families. This is a wonderful place for the kids to explore, learn and get their energy out when the temperature gets too hot or too cold. This is a three story play ground that will inspire your children's imagination and educate them with hands on experiences. I think that children up to the age of 10 can find something that will keep them entertained. Last year I would have given this place five stars, but the height of the price hike cannot go unnoticed.
  • The staff are very helpful and friendly. There are a ton of science and art based activities for children of all ages to do. They have a small arts and craft activity each day (well, the days we've been there) that is only $3. It's fun and the kids like it. You can spend an entire day there and the time will fly. Perfect for very hot days. The membership is pricey up front, but definitely worth it.
  • I wish they had better (later) hours. Bankers would be jealous with the short hours. Other than that, this is an awesome place! We have grand kids from 4 years to 12 years old and they love coming here regularly. They need a night for just the adults!! Have not met a staff member who was not friendly, helpful and seems to enjoy their job.
  • It's a bit overwhelming with lots to do and see. Almost 'too' much. Good for toddler to 10 years old. Lots of fun, interactive exhibits. The water room was especially popular and fun!
  • So much to do to keep a young energetic mind occupied. We were not sure how she would like it. We thought this can only be good for her. 5 hours later and 2 very tired grandparents with a still going granddaughter we left but have plans to go back again very soon. Great place to introduce science and "discover" to learn new branches of the scientific community. Water, land, seismic activities, building from different materials. Learning about various methods of moving items, such as using a pulley to get the item "pulled" up to floor above. It was so thrilling to see my little Raelyn trying to pull a 200lb. block up to the next level. Duke tried 3-4 times then that ringing "PAPA?, PAPA?" Help me. So I showed her how. It was so wonderful. The staff is helpful and right there to help out, answer your questions about all the different areas. Show the little ones hours to get stuff to spell. What GREAT day
