  • This science museum has been around for decades and was in great need of a make-over the last time I visited a few years ago! Visited last week with my almost 3 year old granddaughter and she loved it...  more »

  • Now named Kaleidium North, I read about SciWorks in the local newspaper. It sounded interesting. I called to be sure it would be appropriate for my 5 year old granddaughter. The lady I spoke with told...  more »

  • Decent place to take your kid. Most of the exhibits seem pretty aged (old). And some hardly work as they are supposed to. The cool stuff is outside...the animals. It's very clean. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. The planetarium is pretty decent to see....but the narrator should probably be a little more knowledgeable on the subject of astrology. You could tell they were way out of their element of comfort.
  • This place is great. There are a lot of interactive exhibits there for adults and young kids. You need to invest 2-3 hrs to check out everything.
  • Had loads of fun there, even though I really shouldn't be going to this park, because it's really for kids. However, if you are an unmarried adult like me, you should definitely come here to look at exotic snakes, owls, otters and deer, and explore science by playing with some machinery. Will I come back? Yes, I will, and I am coming back for the animals.
  • Chaperoned 10 children to Kaleideum North, last day of Summer Camp at the Traveler's Club. We decided on a field trip to Sci-Works presently Kaleideum North. Our ages ranged from 4 and 5 to 16. All students and adults enjoyed the trip and time at Kaleideum North...we planned on splitting time and end at Kaleideum Downtown. But they enjoyed K.N. so much, we ran out of time. Next time! Thankyou Kaleideum North!
  • Pretty awesome science museum, with lots of exhibits geared towards kids’ learning. Coupled with the downtown location, a membership here was pretty much a necessity for us.
