    My kids really loved this museum. It had unique exhibits that you don't see in a lot of other science museums.  more »

    There was lots to experiment with and new wonders to learn about. The tornado simulation room was extremely realistic. There were a lot of screams from some of the kids when the simulated tornado went...  more »

    Took my grandthings... one was the right age, the other (12) didn't get into it so much. The Tesla exhibit was interesting but not sure it was worth the extra charge.  more »

    Amazing interactive museum. Lots of hands on activities for children. The science involved is best suited for school age children but there are lots of things to see and touch for the young ones. They have a great "Tornado House" feature that is best suited to older kids. Plan to spend several hours here. Great food opportunities when you go..just walk down to the River Market or one of the other nearby restaurants. We always park "under the freeway". It is free and covered.

    We have been going to the museum since our 10 year old was a 3. We now have a 3 and 4 year old and they love it. They love it so much that we became members 2 years ago. It's all about my kids. If l they love it...I love it!

    FUN interactive exhibits! My kids (11 and 9) and I all thoroughly enjoyed every aspect. 11 year old said this was like a multiple science lab area where you could learn facts in a way far more exciting than reading a textbook. 9 year old said this museum had cool ways of teaching you about your body. We've been to several discovery museums, and this is one of my favorites. Heavy emphasis on the human body. We spent 4 hours here on a day when only 1 or 2 other families were present. If you're present on a busy day, plan to arrive when it opens so you have the full day to play with all of the exhibits!

    This place is very kid friendly! My kids and best friend's kids loved it. They have sections for life, earth and physical science. Being a science teacher, I love it when companies invest in making science fun and engaging. The only reasons for the 4 stars is that it was a bit smaller than other museums I've been to that are tailored to kids and the parking. All of the exhibits are unique, however. We absolutely loved the news booth where you could record like a real news anchor. I would say that you would have fun here. Expect to stay at least 2.5 hours even though we stayed about 4.5 hours with 6 kids. The parking was horrible considering that its downtown and not much space for parking. My friend found a parking space in a parking lot about a 5 minute walk away and I got a parking spot on the street perpendicular to the museum after driving around for about 10 minutes. I had to pay the meter and there's a 2 hour limit so I had to go outside to pay it a second time.

    This is a must if you have kids! There is so much to explore. My kids had so much fun with the very hands on exhibits. The price is perfect and you will spend hours here.
