  • This is a fun place for ages 2 to about 12. There are a lot of hands on activities. Some of the exhibits change once or twice a year, so you can keep going back and see different things. They also have an area for birthday parties. It is best to go on a weekday to avoid the weekends crowds.
  • Nice little place to take your children :-) the bathrooms are nice everything is well taken care of and the lady at the front desk was really sweet... Might want to look into the age group on which to take their as my ten-year-old loved it but my 16 year olds thought it was not so interesting.
  • My granddaughter loved it. I just about had to drag her out so we could get home at a decent time.
  • Great place for kids to play on a cold winter's day.
  • A fun location for small children to play and learn about science.
