  • 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! :)
  • This was a pretty cool museum in the Old Town Temecula area. It is tailored to young kids who are able to run around and explore different areas. There is also a focus on science and even a show of three science experiments at the end of the show. A really nice aspect of this place is that you get about an hour to explore everything in the museum and there is a limited number of tickets so that it isn't overrun by kids. Overall, this is a really cool place to show youngsters about science.
  • Looked so forward to visiting the workshop with our grandchildrens for we are from out of state and they haven't been there. On a website we visited the hours were from 10 am - 5pm. After a long drive we finally arrived only to find it was closing. We needed to come back in half an hour. So we ate a cool snowball, walked all through the town to the Village Museum that has a fun filled hands on museum for children and never walked back to the workshop.
  • This place isn't just fun for the kids, the wife and I had a great time there too.
  • Really interesting and its great for the kids!
