Fun Science Center

Good exhibits. Easy in and out with free parking. Best for kids between 8-11, although there is a bit for a wider range. A little small, but enough to do.

My kids were really engaged in the exhibits, especially excited about the shadow room and crawling through the tunnel area. They were able to connect sensory experiences with the theoretical information they have been exposed to in school. They were able to be my teacher for many of the concepts. I'm glad they had the opportunity to see and feel... More

I have heard this phrase a lot in the last five years and I love to say yes and enjoy the day there! The exhibits are fun, educational and always expanding. It is a given that we will make several trips there a year and when relatives come to town, it is a must see for them too! Great for... More

On our visit half of the exhibits were out of order. Only one aide on duty for an hour to explain exhibits. There was a very loud luncheon in progress and most of the employees were helping with the lunch. The exhibits were difficult for children to operate or understand. It was expensive. Vending machines with junk food. Many of... More

It's a nice place to go when you need to find something for the kids to do that's fun and exciting. Lots of "hands on" for kids and they change the exhibits often.

It is a wonderful touch museum with changing exhibits. Many schools take their classes there for the day.

The Da Vinci science center has a lot of activities. Most of them were geared to older children. The preschool science room was very small and very chaotic because there were so many kids. Our preschooler still enjoyed most of the other activities.
