  • The show and attractions are cool. We love the hands on material. Busy place and kids everywhere but fun. 
  • Fun for the kids, but I think they would enjoy it more if they were older than 5. As they get older, will come back for them to check it out more and participate in the special events.
  • Amazing. Took our 2 & 4 year old daughter. Both girls had a blast. The jungle gym tower is unreal. It just keeps going up and up until your in the glass peak of the building looking out over the city skyline. Unreal. The space exhibits were very neat too.
  • The planetarium was awesome, watched the astronauts movie which was well taken. The museum itself is a bit small. You will be done in a couple of hours. Not many things that really wow the kids. But for the money you pay it is well worth it.
  • It's not any good for adults. Kids might like it bc there's a playground inside. However, there are VERY LITTLE hands on activities. The space inside is VERY under utilized. Very disappointing for the high price. Also, so many of the events were not working properly or even at all.
  • We were two exhibits in and I already knew it was worth the drive! Such a great affordable place to take kids for a fun filled day.
