It's a great museum with lots of cool things to do. It even has a place where little toddlers can play without big giant kids running them over. Also, there are a lot of cool experiments to do.

We live in Grants Pass (1 hour away) but have a yearly pass here. The kids love it. It's educational but very fun and entertaining. I would totally recommend this place if you have kids. Ours are 7, 4, and 1 year old, and they love it.

The adult fee is $ 10.00. Well worth the cost. If you like the hands on approach to science this is a place that you could spend some time. Displays are mostly in good condition and you learn about a variety of scientific areas. Plenty of parking.

My kids and husband had a great time here! It is a little outdated but the exhibits are excellent. We were super entertained and two hours just flew by.

We have passed by Ashland several times and had seen the billboard and wondered what this museum would be like. This time we did stop and we were so glad we did. We had our 3 (almost 4) year old grandson and our 8 year old granddaughter. They had a blast! We adults had just as much fun interacting with... More

The Scienceworks Hands On Museum is a great place for kids to learn about science. There are many displays and gadgets to try out to see how and why they work. It's fun for children of all ages, and lots of interesting things for adults to enjoy as well.

My son is 6 and enjoyed this museum so much. Went on a Monday afternoon and it was quiet which let us take our time at every exhibit. Highly recommend this museum!!!

Always a fun time for the kids and adults. Exhibits change often. Be prepared to get soapy, dirty, and have lots of fun.

We came across ScienceWorks when we were trying to think of where to visit in Ashland. That was where we found ScienceWorks. What I liked about ScienceWorks was that it was hands on. That means I got to touch everything. And whatever was there, I found it fascinating. @ the entrance, there was a time period climbing wall, where the... More
