Great place to take kids

Ton of interactive exhibits that seem appropriate for children in a range of ages. Very nicely set out too.

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.

I took my grandson(14) & granddaughter(7) here during a weekday in the summer. It is a bit pricey for what one gets. There are many hands-on exhibits for children to operate and learn from. I think the exhibits are better suited to children in the 8-10 yr age group. There were several busloads of children from summer camps who roamed... More

As a member of the Science Center and a local science teacher, I enjoy having a granddaughter to experience this with. They have some really good collections and when we went this last time, there was a National Geographic special event display for the summer. This is a great place for kids and anyone with kids.

Great experience for kids to play, have lots of fun, and learn different things. Ever so often they have special events at low rates.

Thought it could be a little more interactive. For example, sign says to 'talk' to weatherman but you just press a button and it plays a recording. Some exhibits didn't work. It's a small center so you can get through pretty quickly and better for younger children.
