  • The bathrooms have transgender signs. Not sure if sixty years ago that the people who built the place for local kids envisioned a dangerous bathroom policy. It reflects the political views of the mana...  more »
  • Because our kids definitely could have played even longer! Lots of hands on activities. The VR driving and flying are cool but we could not find instructions on the objective - we're we just flying to...  more »

  • Wow, I visited with a friend who has a 2 1/2 year old. I was immediately struck by how much better a destination this is for that age than the theme parks. There is a special section just for kids and he had a wonderful time playing with interactive exhibits that had him chasing balls and scarves. I saw a one year old entertaining herself, as well as kids up to 10 or 12 - and adults as well, though you aren't allowed in that section without a child. Meanwhile, in the rest of the museum the toddler enjoyed digging for fossils, the adults enjoyed trying to make it through the laser maze ( a temporary exibit), constructing s building with blocks, building balanced trolleys, experiencing hurricane winds and many other things. Really a delight and we didn't even get to visit the complimentary theater.
  • Lots of options to keep all ages engaged. Rotating exhibits to keep things new and interesting. We did a membership and make a point to go a couple times a month. Our son is two and quite entertained ... Even if it's just going up/down stairs and elevators sometimes. Places for parents to sit. Saw lactation room for mothers. Theater.. education... Science!
  • Great place to take the kids on the weekend. They have fun and learn at the same time! Lots of interactive, hands on exhibits and activities, reasonable entry fees (especially the yearly pass) and frequent enough rotation of attractions to keep thing interesting for several visits a year. Movies are part of the deal, and while it is very kid oriented, adults will also find much to enjoy and learn.
  • My three year old loved this place and could have stayed the whole day if we left her. There is so much to do and see (lots of shows) it was refreshing. The price was great and the year pass is a steal if you are local.
  • Great place to go with kids. I went with a friend and really enjoyed myself. They have a wall that is like a giant light bright. The activities are great for children and adults alike. Some parents treat it like a let my child go do whatever and those misbehaving children can be a little frustrating. But don't let other people deter you from enjoying a great day here.
