Great fun for the kids (young and old)!

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

We went to this museum with our 13 and 11 year old grandsons. It has more hands - on experiments than any I remember. It reminded me a little of the "old" Eploratorium in San Francisco. You can see the speed of your baseball pitch, pull yourself up on a set of pulleys, see the patterns of iron shavings in... More

This museum has several rooms. When we took our three year old, we didn't even make it to all of them (he was having a bad day). But the ones we went into were great, and he had a lot of fun with the potter's wheel covered in sand, the spinner, the bubble room, etc. We will go back, without... More

When my three-year-old great-grandson came to visit last summer we took him to Science Works. We weren't sure he was old enough to enjoy the museum, but no worries. He was enthralled by many different options and we were particularly pleased to see that children of all ages from preschool to high school were engaged and participating. We also appreciated...

This hands-on museum on the south edge of Ashland is a fun visit for adults but really super for kids and families. Lots of interactive exhibits as well as some creative play options for the younger ones. Really it's interesting for all ages. Some sections are always there, others travel from similar museums. It's open on weekends and during school... More

Not to expensive and a great experience for younger kids! Staff is always very nice and helpful. New exhibits all the time so can try new things. We chose to go mostly during winter

This is a great way to spend a few hours with the kids, particularly on days when the Rogue Valley weather is less than accommodating (often). Many interesting exhibits and demonstrations; was a toss up as to whether my son or I enjoyed it most! Good for about 2 solid hours of my 8 year-old's attention span!
