  • First time visit with family! So much fun!! The 8 yr old in the group had the most fun, but the rest of us adults were a close match! Watching the kids is a joy. Hands on learning can't be beat. Spent...  more »

  • My boy was totally engaged. Had four of my guys and one of them doesn't do well outside in the big bad world, this place was set up in such a way that they were all bouncing happily. They're all under 6 but there was something for all of them, didn't even have to try to entertain the youngest or the oldest to keep everyone together while the others had fun. Don't bring a stroller, there's plenty of space and access to everything even if on wheels but the smallest was so into everything it was nonstop action. Our stroller basically got ditched lol. We figured two hours tops, but as I sit in the car to give the dog and the baby rest 3 hours from arrival I'm thinking we're going to have to drag the other three kids out kicking and screaming. My boy who needs the dog didn't even bat an eye at her leaving to wait in the car for him! It's been a wonderful afternoon, a good one for me. Dad is super brainy so he loves that there's a whole section dedicated to the space sciences. Everything hands on, everything engages more then just two senses.
  • Excellent facility for fun, hands on learning for children aged toddler to middle school with special events for high schoolers and adults. Safe, clean, and friendly, this place provides wholesome family entertainment. Don't forget to check out the boat and the 3D movie theater!
  • I went to see the small "Bodies" exhibit and stayed a little over an hour. I don't know about the kids section, but the building I was in was small and nice. They have restrooms in the back with electronic trash cans.
  • A great place to brink the kids. It can be educational if you use it as a teaching tool or you can just let them run wild, many a little of both.
  • A little bit smaller, but full of fun. Kids like to enjoy themselves there. Playing the characters and watch the carve of dinosaur.
