  • Very useful and informative. Children can touch and use all machines and installations. Obligatory to visit even for adults! 
  • I used to come here on field trips when I was in Elementary School and now I bring my daughter and she absolutely loves it. Great place that inspires creativity and sets the mind free to explore and l...  read more »
  • There is so much to do at this museum that my granddaughters have loved it since they were five and now they are eight and still beg me to go back. Diversified, educational, creative, three-stories fu...  read more »
  • This museum is so fun! We took our 1 1/2 year old here and he had a blast. There was so much for him to explore. The water play area and the play kitchen area were fun. The upstairs early education area was his favorite and perfect for ages 5 and under I'd say. So many activities to engage all the senses. We ate lunch at the cafe and it was overpriced and just ok tasting. But im glad we had the option since we didn't bring a lunch. Our son was too excited by all the activities around us to eat so next time we'll eat outside or before we arrive. Bring extra clothes and socks - he got soaked I'm the water play, even with the aprons.
  • Great activity/discovery/science museum for kids. Bring dry clothes as the water play area is great fun and will soak your little ones! Long queue and few free tables in rush hour at the museum café. No wi-fi, no parking. Park along Woz way ($2/hr, meter) or at the $5 all day parking place up the road (follow signs outside the museum)
  • They have lots of exhibits for kids of all ages up to around 10. There are also rotating exhibits which are usually well curated and fun. Even when it's busy, it's not overwhelming. We can spend hours there and the kids always have a blast.
  • Great children's science museum with purely hands-on exhibits and great experiences. Always packed. Yearly membership a no-brainer. Parking nearby across the street is $5.
  • My daughter and I had such a wonderful time here. She is 15 months and had a great time at the upstairs area designed for little children. They make a very safe environment and I felt safe letting her run around.
