  • Fun place for the kids. It has not changed much but still a good time. Too bad there was no pace to eat without leaving. I think it is better with older kids (6+ years) as they can interact with more engaging options.
  • I've visited Museums, Historical sites and National Parks all over the US, and this is hands down one of my favorite children's museums. Beats the Franklin Institute, Children's Museum of Philadelphia AND the Exploratorium in SF for display, interactivity, scale and presentation. A thoroughly enjoyable place to spend the day with 4-12 year olds!
  • This museum is a little small (compared to bigger to bigger science centers), but my 8 year old had a fantastic time here. The cloud climbing structure and the "Truckee connects" river were the biggest hits. We will definitely be back!
  • This is a fantastic place for both kids and adults! It is all focused around hands-on learning, letting the kids (and aduilts!) touch, hear, see, and interact with things from mining history to bridges to renewal energy. They also host "Social Science" events every couple months which is a 21+ late night event where everyone drinks wine/beer/soda, eats food, and explores all the exhibits (even climb the cloud structure!) without those pesky kids judging us for having so much fun.
  • This is an awesome place for kids of all ages. Tons of activities including physical and scientific discoveries.. Our toddler loves this place.
