We visited the science centre on a Saturday morning and were treated with $2 admission per person!!!! We played the big games in the yard like Connect Four, Chess, and Jenga. We tried the climbing wall and lots of the other things in the yard. Then we went inside. Myself and my ten year old were beaten in a tug... More

Ok, but not a lot to see or do. Recommended only for very young children, as there is little to capture the mind or interest of school-aged children.

Words can not express the awesome displays and interaction between the staff and visitors. Pay your two bits and tell your friends.

We were looking for a family activity and were told to check this out. It operates out of an old jail which add to the fun. The displays were simple but very educational and we all enjoyed ourselves. It is not a super modern or high end science facility but well worth the visit.

It is amazing to see what this science centre and museum has managed to do with, for the most part, very low tech equipment. Everything is hands-on. There are indoor and outdoor areas to explore on three levels. Science demos daily. Very friendly staff. My daughter (8) loved it and didn't want to leave. We went back twice and still... More
