  • This is a nice museum of science. It has great indoor exhibits, especially for children. The theme when I visited was "Summer of Dinosaurs". It takes about an hour to see the interior exhibits...

  • Incredible interactive museum. Good for any age kids. So much to do. Easily over three hours of interactive fun. Not to mention the stuff outside if you go on a day nice enough to enjoy those exhibits. The staff are wonderful, so nice and helpful. The exhibits are challenging but fun. We had out 5 yo boy and 7 yo girl and there were blown away by everything. There are some brain puzzles on the second floor that night need some adult coaching, but very fun.
  • I wish there was a 0 star
  • A phenomenal place to bring the whole family. Staff are always pleasant, kind, and informative. There are so many activities available for all ages and the rotating exhibits are always so engaging.
  • Great place for school age kids and adults as well. Nice balance of indoor and outdoor spaces. Fun learning for all ages.
  • Great spot on a busy vacation day. The inside has 2 real levels full of engaging experiments. While they go upntob5 floors and have an observation deck the top floors are one exhibit small rooms. Great fro little ones (2+) all the way through high school. I enjoyed the live animals, snapping turtles, leaf cutter ants, fish, etc... and both the music making and bubble making sections. Only negative... for its size and location the cost is not cheap for a family. 17$ or so for each adult and $14 each for kids of any age... that adds up. Bonus, great outdoor spaces to explore along the river too.
