We are from the US and we have been to the Exploratorium in San Francisco, OMSI in Portland and well this is not on the same level. Most of the interactive stuff was broken or the computer was so slow that you couldn't work with it. Very small. Looks big on the outside. The restaurant smells terrible (I think its... More

the staff is great. the center stage shows are really informative and fun, kids love them. It is expensive to go, but if you are a local it's best to have a membership. Also, they have these awesome Adults only nights once a month and they are a riot. The Murder Mystery and Valentines ones usually sell out. Also, found... More

A visit to the Science World will cost you the better part of a brownie ($100.00) for 2 adults by time you factor in admission, the Omnimax Theater, a bite to eat and parking. Allow about 4 hours to absorb all the exhibits and Omnimax. The science demos were entertaining especially if fire, electricity and illusions are of interest to... More

kids had a blast exploring all the various exhibits, learning about science without even realizing they were learning! Would definitely come back again

Very impressed with the layout of Science World. Like most Science type places they have the basics when teaching or showing science to kids but the environmental / sustainability displays are one the best I've seen and with lots of things to do and hand on activities to keep the kids busy. We spent about 2 hours walking around and... More

We came here in hope that our kid would learn a great deal about science. Not so! The place was crowded. There are a lot of wasted space. The only place that our son had some fun was the area where he could throw balls. Considering the price we had to pay, this place was not at the level we... More

Thought I had stepped into a play place over run with 5 year olds who it really is geared for. Last visited about 8 years ago and remembered that my young children really liked it. But didn't remember it being worthy enough of the pricey entrance fee to go back anytime soon. Thanks to 2 free adult passes we went... More
