  • I wasn't sure what to expect of what I thought was a small museum - boy was I wrong and very impressed! It has a nice science area, aquarium area, and planetarium. My son (5) loved the young kids area...  more »
  • A bit expensive but great for kids. Adults may find it a bit boring. They should have a reciprocal agreement with the zoo. That would keep the cost down. I probably will not return except with a membe...  more »

  • Fun place. Aquarium are my favorite and this one was nice. Wish it was bigger. Kids had a blast both inside and outside. The food was so so, over priced like many other museums. Bring your own lunch and eat it outside near the park there is a trail and seating areas. Would Visit again!
  • This place was very fun and nicely made. The planetarium show was very delightful. The employees were kind. There food was good but I've had better(reason for taking one star off). Out of my whole trip there I found it very fun, and delightful. All this good and for a cheap price .
  • Planetarium was nice. Aquarium was nice, but small. The museum itself is quite small. Not a bad way to spend $20 on a hot day, but nothing memorable or better than other science centers.
  • Absolutely amazing. My children loved every part of it from the fish aquarium to space the stars human body, miniature golf. We loved it. The zoo is awesome too. Can't wait until next time
  • Nice Science Center for little kids. The planetarium makes the trip worth it. If you aren't planning on seeing one of the planetarium shows, I wouldn't bother going.
