(3.7/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Get up close and personal with a Russian space station at Tommy Bartlett Exploratory and explore technology and science. More than 174 hands-on exhibits invite visitors to interact with space modules. The High Wire Skycycle attracts kids to a different kind of bike ride--one where they mount a bicycle balanced on a tightrope and ride across the sky. This and other exhibits add fun to physics, space exploration, and technology. Purchase tickets online to avoid crowds at the reception desk during the busy season.

  • We had not been at this hotel in over 15 years and were pleasantly surprised at all there was to do. We were a little worried that the exhibits may be too babyish for our 13 year old son who loves sci...  more »

  • It's a bit dated, but still a great visit. The bike on a wire is a great experience for kids, and the visit is very educational as well.
  • A fun little place to take your kids to explore the concepts of science, logic and math. Some of the attractions cost extra beyond the cost of admission.
  • So much stuff to do i loved it lots of experiments like driving a buke on a line and making electricty and lots more and you do it all by yourself with no staff
  • Always a fun experience, great from the whole family! Price is right too! Must see attraction in the Dells.
  • This would be a great spot to take your kids!! A lot of cool interactions for children but definitely not for adults by themselves.
