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!

My two grandsons, ages seven and eight, absolutely love this place. I take them here every time they visit and they can spend hours playing among the hands on exhibits. I couldn't tell you what they like best, but they are fond of making rockets, airplanes and other flying objects out of paper. This summer they had some new exhibits... More

I love the special programs as well as the regular exhibits. They foster learning in all ages. The different ways that they exhibit engages multiple senses. I'm a very tall 5 year old - you know, still loves dinosaurs - so if you are open to learning about science, take a jaunt down Main and enjoy. You'll be glad you... More

A great place right here in Ashland, well worth a visit. Kids love to do the experiments here! An easy way to teach and entertain them for a few hours. Sights and sounds they will truly enjoy!

The recent exhibit of roaring dinosaurs that followed your movements with their huge heads was way scarey!!! Lots of stuff to do for all ages, but give the kids their space and let them go - big balloons, science experiments, films, optical illusions, tests of strength and coordination - plus a whole outside to explore the latest delight is a...

Kids of all ages will enjoy this treat! Lots to see and mostly to do. We have been there with 2-yr-olds as well as 12-yr-olds and it was enjoyed by all.

They continually add or change the exhibits, so it is always fun for our grandsons who are now 10 and 12. They have been going since they were little and still love it. They had a large dinosaur display which was excellent.
