  • This is a great place for kids to explore! So many hands on experiences. Cool little gifts to buy, toys and items to keep the kids busy! Wish they still had their haunted house in October! We loved it...  more »

  • Took my 18mo. Grandson late Saturday afternoon - they had just closed temporarily for a scheduled "cleaning/disinfecting". That alone scored 5 stars for me. Employee s happy, helpful and very enthusiastic. Price is very fair:. Adults $5, kids under 2 free.
  • This museum is really fun but there were some draw backs. They section off the day into segments for people to come in to the museum and older children would probably not enjoy this as much as younger children. Here is the schedule that is posted on their door: Closed Monday (Except during the summer and school holidays) Tue-Sat: 10am- 12 noon, 12:30-2:30, 3-5 Friday night science adventure: 5:30-7:30 Sunday- 12:30-2:30 and 3-5 *They are closed during the break between sessions to straighten up and sanitize the museum Fees- $5 per person over the age of 2. Ask about Military discounts ;) I give this museum 5 stars because it was our first time there and it is really a cool place. It is NOT a regular museum. You can touch and feel everything in the place. Also, there are scavenger hunts that you can do which vary in difficulty. (Level 1 easiest and level 7 is the hardest). I will tell you that my kids are aged 11, 9, 7 and 5. The two oldest had fun but they are not interested in going back. My 7 and 5 year old would go back every day if they could! So just know that after a certain age the museum looses its appeal. During our session they did science experiments. My older two kids watched them with their dad and they said that they were really cool. I was with the younger two children who had no interest in seeing them! Also, kids have to be accompanied by adults at all times so just keep this in mind if you have several children because it can be hard to keep them all in the same room. Lastly, they do have a cute gift shop just inside the building that you can go in to even if you have not paid to see the museum. It has many different types of things (mostly science related) and there are items for many different age groups. I hope this helps! :)
  • An affordable outing that's tons of fun for toddlers. We loved being able to touch and play with everything in the workshop. The tunnels, machines, and toys on trays in the front were all big hits. The gift shop has some awesome fun and educational options for kids of all ages. The location is great because you can walk to a few places for a meal before or after your visit.
  • Great fun places for a wide range of kids and adults, too. Price for admission is fair, and there is a fun gift shop to check out. I felt it was just big enough to have plenty of interesting things but not so big to make you feel exhausted coming out. I highly recommend checking this place out, especially if you have a child with a curious/observant mind.
  • A little run down, but it's a fun place for young kids. You're allowed to touch everything, and there are some really fun things to do. A lot of the exhibits aren't functional, but the ones that are make it worth it. Plus, at only 5 bucks a ticket, it's hard to beat the price.
