  • Disappointing. Wanted to see the Pompeii exhibit but found out it would cost $110 dollars to see it because we would have to pay general admission one another special exhibit fee. They can keep their petrified corpses. We're having fun at Tilt Studio at AZ Mills!!
  • Lots of fun! General admission isn’t too expensive but you have to pay entra for some super cool stuff once inside. Lots of hands on activities, some is definitely aimed toward kids but my girlfriend and I (both college aged) had a good time.
  • We are just visiting and had a couple hours to kill. I thought the science center was great for what we came to do but if we lived here I wouldn’t waste the money on a membership. They Charge extra for multiple exhibits and many of the activities didn’t work. I just don’t think the costs of admission matches up to quality.
  • Good place, but gets boring after a while. They do not change anything except the monthly exhibit, like the robots and stuff. I was here for a fire drill once, the staff had greatly executed the drill and got the people out fast. These staff have been trained to perfection by the Science Center. Recommend only go here once a year, you'll get bored if you go often. Otherwise, great experience. Bring kids here, they'll love it!
  • Fun to be a kid again. Amazing job of turning science and learning into interactive kiosks. We wanted the kids to learn on vacation and this was a fantastic place to visit. They also validate your parking. We unfortunately came on the same day that every elementary school within AZ decided to have an outing here and the place was packed. Fortunately the place is large enough to easily accommodate bus loads of kids and us without a problem. Come. Explore. Be a kid. Have fun.
