  • Growing up, I visited The Valley frequently and yet I have no memory of this place. I was excited to find it through TripAdvisor but left unsure after reading other reviews. Overall, I had my likes an...  more »

  • I wish they had more in their exhibits since you can be in and out of the museum and have seen all of the exhibits in their entirety in less than 2 hours. They have good programs for the kids and fun family activities. Museum membership is still a bargain if you travel. I've used my IMAS museum membership to get into museums in San Antonio, Houston and Denver for free. Overall a pleasant experience.
  • The price is a little much for the size and experience. However they do have a student discount which is appreciated. It seems to be geared towards children which I did not know. So it would be great for young families. This museum offers a diverse experience for children as they have hands-on science programs, small creatures, fun art, a play area, and outdoor sculptures.
  • Fun kids exhibit and awesome playground, gift shop, and art exhibit. The museum has scheduled, fun classes for the kids. Discounts offered here for various circumstances.
  • Quiet and friendly staff. Always enjoying passing by here, especially because my daughter loves the "wooden castle" that has little "secret passages"
  • Nice place but they need to improve. Front counter personnel need to improve their personal skills. Everyone else was wonderful.
