  • Love this place. A lot of things you can do and have fun with. Around this time it is not that busy. It is about 25 dollars per person. They have deals as well. Unfortunately when I went the airplane part was closed. Even with it closed up, it is still a great place to go and learn!
  • Very nice family friendly (even provides wheelchairs!) staff was super helpful , kind and funny! Great prices, unfortunately we did go during the pandemic so a few things were closed due to safety precautions, so we will definitely visit again. Staff was walking around making sure everything was clean and sanitized!

  • Cool museum! The first museum in Philly to open after the lockdown due to Covid 19. They really did a great job to keep visitors safe and you can still enjoy your visit! Thanks guys
  • This place is great for families, field trips, or even a date! They have tons of things to see, amazing limited exhibits, and an awesome gift shop. Definitely plan a trip if you're looking for things to do.
