  • I came here when they first opened and it was great. Now they have let this place go to hell in a handbag. No time with the kids maybe 15 minutes at the first. Nothing works carpet dirty, lots do things missing in the different areas. Foul water in the water table and each kid had to touch the statnant water. Would not recommend to anyone. Don't waste your time or money. Highly disappointed.
  • My kids absolutely loved this place. However, I spent the entire time cringing and using hand sanitizer. The concept is great, but it is poorly maintained. Half of the exhibits did not work and those that did were filthy. Honestly, multiple things were falling apart, and it appeared that it had never been cleaned. As much as my kids loved it, we still won't be back.
  • I am terribly disappointed with our visit. As with most other comments, the place is suffering from major neglect. Many features not working and damaged. My personal issue was with the AC or should I say lack thereof. I spent most of the covered in sweat. Go into the bubble room and the stench about knocked you down. My 8 year old seemed to enjoy her visit, however, myself and my older daughter, who had visited years ago were sorely dissatisfied. I don't usually worry about going into public places but this place worrys me due to all the immunocomprimising medications I take for my MS.
  • A lot of broken and incomplete exhibits. My 4.5 year old daughter had some fun but she really expected more stuff to do and was getting frustrated. This place led to more questions about "why it is broken and not fixed" than any resemblance of educational fun. There were 2 ladies at the front desk but that was it. The arctic place was a disaster area and the stuffed animals were filthy. I am not normally against a kid getting dirty but I would rather go that famous mouse cheese place during cold and flu season than go here again. Overall $8/person plus $3 parking was way to much to pay.
  • Absolutely love taking the kids I babysit here. Staff is helpful and friendly, it's clean, and very entertaining for the kids. I would highly recommend taking your kids here.
