    Always have a great time here. Exhibits are informative and educational. A great place to exert a kids energy in a comfortable environment. Food is good but service can be slow- whether it's from lack of staff or something else. Wish the tree festival would come back.

    Best science museum I have visited. A variety of displays for everyone from toddlers to 70 years old like me. We visited with two teenagers. They did not get bored in the 4 hours we were there. That made it worth the price.

    Great experience! Excellent for children through about age 10, and still entertaining for older kids as there are many active engaging hands on items to play with. Favorite: Water exhibit demonstrating how "Now you see me 2" did the rain stunt with strobe lights.

    We were there 5 hours and still didn't see everything. I took a book to occupy my mind in between taking pictures to text to family members and just allowed them to explore and enjoy themselves. My favorite section was the slanted house and the science live show, which made their day when Auto came out to take pictures. yeah!! Hands down, their favorite was riding the Segway, over and over and over again.

    Absolutely loved it! We were there three and a half hours and saw the planetarium show and still didn't have enough time to see everything. Will definitely be coming back for the Live Science Show and to spend more time and curiocity.
