  • Went on a Tuesday morning during spring break. If you're a paying customer and don't like crowds, try to avoid the day when it's a free Tuesday. That happened to us, and the place was packed. Had to w...  more »

  • This place is amazing. Hands out exhibits that are fun and educational. The IMAX theater shows great science based documentaries. For $20, you get a movie(typically about 45 minutes long) and unlimited time to explore the exhibition area. There is also a place upstairs for the wee little kids to play around. Something for everyone.
  • Great place for the kiddos. My 9 year old son loves this place.
  • Recently visited and it's a nice museum. Saw the movie "A Beautiful World" which was pretty good, albeit a bit activist regarding global warming. Many of the exhibits were over the heads of my elementary school age kids, so they were less engaged than I would have liked. Didn't seem like there was much for them; a section for under-5 kids, and the rest of the museum. I would consider going again with middle-school age kids.
  • The best museum in the park, in my opinion. There are many interactive stations, so many things to see, and you just wont have enough time to go through it all. My favorite one was the power generation and load balancing simulation.
  • Beware, IMAX movie (Beautiful Planet) is one hour long and quite boring, so plan accordingly. 7 year old daughter fell asleep midway, while I started dozing off towards the end. Exhibits are lame and meant for really young kids. Would not go again
