  • We come to Reno a few times a year to ski nearby Mt.Rose. We discovered this exploration museum on this last trip and the kids (ages 8, 6, and 4) were ecstatic! Beautifully done water play area as wel...  read more »
  • This is a fun and interesting place for all ages. We actually went on an adult night and the admission included wine and hors d'oeuvres. There are rooms showing different scientific things and hands-o...  read more »
  • This was a fantastic little museum. It reciprocated the membership of ours back home. My toddler (3 YO) was big enough to enjoy everything the museum had to offer. The small children's area was a blas...  read more »
  • 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 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 an awesome place for kids of all ages. Tons of activities including physical and scientific discoveries.. Our toddler loves this place.
  • Visited this gem while on vacation from CT and we have to say this is one of the best museums for kids we have ever been to. The museum was well organized. Clean. Bright. And best of all staff was always around to offer support.
  • Lots of things to do here and very kid friendly! Clean, helpful staff, building feels very new and you can easily spend a couple hours on here and not be done! Magnets, earthquake activities, building, Nevada and Reno area topographic activities, humongous cloud formation play structure to climb! Wave simulation where you can race little boats and floating devices as they are carried by the current. Two stories with stairs, ramps and elevator access. Great little family room for moms with little ones who need to nurse or get ready to nap! Only $10 admission but a steal for a family annual pass! Will be coming back!
