Good for young kids

Really interesting for families with young kids. You can spend some quality time together. Big kids will get bored quickly.

If you enjoy hands on learning, watching the earth move, or just science fun in general then this is your place. The Da Vinci Science Center is a an interactive learning platform with multiple exhibits from demonstrating how shadows can be captured on a wall with phosphorescent paint to running a light bulb with a bicycle to seeing microscopic organisms....

Our 3 year- old grandson had a wonderful time at the DaVinci. We had no idea that there was a hands-on science center within a short driving distance. The exhibits are child and grandparent friendly. Every facet of science is included. This is so much fun. . . We may return without our grandson.

A neat little museum, not too big, not too small, with lots of fun hands-on things to do for the kids. Well maintained exhibits withstand the incredible abuse that is heaped on them by kids. Good educational programs. Come on a weekend, the place is PACKED with school groups during the week.

I live right by the Da Vinci Center so i do go there every once in a while. It is a fun place for younger children and their parents. There are many attractions like the dark tunnel (which was really fun) and the glow room( which is also pretty cool)

Went to see an exhibit on the body. This was a special limited time exhibit, but all of their exhibits are great. Fun time and indoors in case of a rainy day

we went for the special nasa space exhibit. we are members of a reciprocal science group. nevertheless, they charged us $ 7 a person for this special exhibit. the special exhibit was small and very boring. my kids generally like the museum. keep in mind we get in free. I would never pay the regular admission prices for this place.... More
