  • Really great place for kids. Three floors of guided and independent stations where kids can touch, interact and learn about phenomena. Easily spent hours there, our daughter kept wanting to explore more. Everything from space to health to physics topics covered. Can dig for fossils or look at x-rays. Small gift shop at exit. Overall great for ages 2 and up, maybe best if at least age 4 to get most out of exhibits.
  • We had a great time! They even have party rooms so you can have an awesome science filled birthday party! My 6 year old was blown away by this place, I can't wait to take my 3 year old to explore.
  • My 4 year old loved going here for her birthday. Lots of fun and engaging to young minds with ought being a drag for the parents.
  • It's always fun, but it's always the same thing. Half of the stuff has been there for 20 years.
  • My kids loved it and we learned some cool stuff. The staff was very helpful and friendly. They also offer a military discount. The only reason I give it 4 stars is some displays were under repair.
