  • They rotate interactive displays through so a membership is good to get. We go here when the weather is bad for an all day fun experience.  more »
  • What a great museum! True, it's targeted towards kids, but there is so much variety that "kids" of all ages can have fun while learning. We visited with two teenaged boys who loved every minute. Most ...  more »

  • I loved this place as a kid and I probably love it more now as a parent. We have the membership and we love it! We have a 1 year old and a 3 year old and they have the most fun there. I am very grateful for the nurseries so I can take a breastfeeding break and then continue to play with the girls. Everything is so well thought out and the customer service is great!
  • This place is great for children. Lots of fun exhibits and areas where they can participate in arts and crafts. I would definitely recommend this as a destination for any one with kids whether they're interested in science or not. It's well worth it.
  • I came to science museum as a child when it was still the Omniplex. This year I bought a year long pass for myself and my four year old. We love it. We come as often as possible and still have a blast every time. There is so much to do here that you can’t do it all in one visit. You have to take your time and enjoy it. My daughter gives it two thumbs up. It is pricey. Which is why I suggest the season pass. The pass last 365 days. So it’s good for all seasons. You absolutely can bring in outside good and drinks so bring your picnic stuff and make a day out of it!
  • This place is HUGE! lots of open space for kids to run around and do things. This by far as been one of the best Science Centers I've been to. I've been to the ones in Los Angeles and Orange County in California and this one just blows them out of the water.
  • Our 6 year old loved the Science Museum. There were so many things to do, we couldn't get through all of it in the 5 hours we were there. They had a special event for Earth Day in the garden area dealing with pollinators, which my daughter had a great time with. The science show was also a hit. This place is awsome for children. I love this area that has little pieces of iron that stick to a magnet. I love the kids playing in the playing area.
