  • We love this place and just had to become members. We absolutely love attending all the special member events they are so much fun. Our kids always leave super excited and can't wait to go back again. Just an overall amazing place.
  • Everytime we visit the cube we learn new and interesting information! The older exhibits are just as fun as the newest ones that come along every few months. We love it here and try to make it every week!
  • My kids love this place. Easy to get to, but parking can be a pain. Lots of things for the kids to do and look at. Can keep the kids busy for many hours.
  • Very fun to take the kids. Educational and entertaining. The changing temporary exhibits keep it fun on multiple visits. Decent price for family membership. Food options to purchase, or you can BYO and eat in the cafeteria.
  • We had such a great time! This was our first visit as we enter Cindy that greeted us was so polite and kind she is definitely made us feel welcome. Very Clean and a friendly environment...
