  • I was there today for about 3 hours and still didn't see everything. This place is perfect for our 3 year old, everything is very interactive and hands on things to do. If you are a Natural Science Center member (Greensboro, N.C.), don't forget you can get in for half price! We will definitely be back!
  • Loved the different activity stations. Loved the music area with the piano carpet, the animal exhibits, the tree house slide, race track and block building area.
  • I enjoyed the exhibits overall. My 4 year old daughter and my 10 year old son really loved this place especially the physics exhibit. however I would recommend that some of the signs be lower and some of the explanations be simplified. the map could be made more kid friendly just in case a child was navigating alone.
  • A wonderful experience. All my grandkids have enjoyed it for many, many years. The outside animals are their favorites. There is no way this can be moved to downtown. Much, much better than The Children's museum.
  • My son (now 4) has been going for over a year and loves it. He likes all of the exhibits and the planetarium show. It is clean inside and rarely crowded. I agree with those who say it is better than the children's museum. I agree that it is for younger kids. Only downside is there is no cafe, only vending machines.
