  • Excellent museum for the whole family! Hands on exhibits make it fun for kids which makes it fun for everyone. The exhibits are working examples of the laws of math and physics that beg for interaction. Everything is designed to play with and it turns out it is more interesting to physically experience the laws of math and science rather than just reading about them or even just watching. Reminds me of many childhood hours spent at the Seattle Pacific Science Center.
  • Unique place to bring your kids. My niece loves this place and enjoys going multiple times. They have science rooms to engineer things. Museum structures and normally a craft workshop going on. The cloud maze is probably the most fun.
  • The grandkids(1/5) and I had a great time. The youngest even found plenty to perk her interests. MY G-son especially loved the cloud walk and excavation area. Both loved Sue the T-Rex. Well worth spending the afternoon. The only drawback was no snack bar or anything, think next time I'll pack them a lunch.
  • Lots of fun for the kids. We especially loved climbing in the cloud maze together. With a membership it makes a great quick stop to let the kids burn off some energy when we are in Reno.
  • Awesome place to take the kids. They try to keep things updated and it's extremely clean. Lots of different activities for the kids to do.

Where to stay in Reno

Since Reno's casinos want you to save your money for the blackjack table, they offer some very reasonable rates on their rooms. Even a stay in one of the amenity-rich resort- or spa-style casinos downtown can be quite affordable. Plenty of hotels, motels, inns, and lodges are scattered throughout town, though most lie in and around downtown. If you're planning to ski in the mountains west of town, staying near Interstate 80 can save a couple minutes on your commute. Accommodations in Reno generally remain easy to find, but the days before and after the popular Burning Man festival in the desert east of the city tend to see a bump in visitors. Consider booking ahead if your visit coincides with the festival.
