  • This is a children's science museum. Plenty of hands on experience for children . Young ones loved it . I have to agree that I doubt 13 years and older would enjoy it. There is a plus for poor and low...  more »
  • There is so much to do here it is a blast! There is fun for anybody of any age here. Hands on fun for the kids, but peppered with plenty of fun for adults as well. 
  • Great place to take children in the city! Many fun, interactive exhibits for children to engage with, and helpful staff!

  • They do a very nice job for younger kids. They produce excellent programs. It my opinion, the ceiling age for taking kids there is approximately 12 years of age. Older children get bored
  • Good place to spend a day, but kinda small and price high... Totally didn't expect pay for parking.
  • Lame. Over priced, wish I could get my money back. Waste of money, really disapointed ! Let me warn you not to waste your money. Im maybe used to the museum back where I'm from. But really this is just a waste , my daughter was bored. I'm actually feeling upset over 46 dollars to get in . never again.
  • It was a wonderful experience. My son - 6 years old- has enjoyed it so much. Kids do everything themselves and try new experiences. This learning-by-doing approach is very engaging. My son wanted to spend the whole day there. You should end your visit by going up to the 3rd floor, I guess, where water related activities are there.
  • Awesome, the kids love it. Some stuff you kan do at home but the social interaction is important, I think some of the exhibits kould use some fixing up, if it were for adults we wouldn't kome back because of the lack of up keep. We all know kid's are a bit more harder on things, but im sure some things are worth not over looking.
