  • Fabulous, very doable and enjoyable science museum which works for the entire family. Visited with family and all ages were delighted with this wonderful museum. Great, fun, educational, hands on, experiential museum with a great combination of fun, challenge, learning, entertainment all in a reasonable sized venue which can be enjoyed in 2 hours or a full day. Beautiful grounds, water attraction, place for kids to run around for n swim suits under sprinklers and walk through artificial stream. Great nature hike and view of the river. Great puzzles and mind games. A chance to launch gigantic bubbles. Plenty of things for hyperactive kids and the most studious of your brood. Very highly recommended! Great staff. Great gift shop and book store.
  • We have a membership here. We love it and visit as often as we can. We usually don't see everything each visit but we could spend hours here. The staff is always attentive and the ladies at the front desk always have a smile on their face. The bathrooms are usually in great shape. There's not usually any staff outside for the water feature exhibits. They do change some exhibits out often bit there's a few that have never changed. The tree house area for little ones is fun but seems it needs some updating or someone in the staff to check in on it, the balls are often not there and things seem to be missing but I know kids can be rough and in all the excitement leave with items meant to stay. All in all, there's so much to do here. It's fun for all ages but my 8 year old has loved it since she was probably 4 years old. Our 1 year old loves most of it also.
  • My family and I got the membership pass that allows us up to 6 people per visit. It was well worth it. The have exhibits they offer are all hands on and fun to do. The outdoor water area ( not for swimming) is just has interesting and they have a cool little trail that you walk through.
  • This place knows children. A wonderful museum for kids ages 2-12, but enough to satisfy teens who tag along. they have hands on exhibits, as well as an amazing outside water space that becomes a great play spot in the summer. There is also a trail system outside. Highly recommend, bring a picnic lunch and relax on the grounds. Everyone in family will find something to enjoy about it.
  • Great science museum for many ages. Activities run by staff are awesome. And the leaf cutter ants are amazing. Great outdoor space, too. Bring spare clothes for the little ones, so they can play in the fountains.
