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.

Couldn't even see the exhibits there was too many people there. The really need to have limit to field trips and such if they have too many then don't let the public pay to be run down and pushed around.

Many schools & home schooled children come here during the school year. It's geared more towards younger & mid-age children. I wouldn't recommend it for high schools so much They change their exhibits on a somewhat regular basis & have some old originals still in place. There's also learning labs the children in school groups take place & a teacher... More

My child loved all the hands on activities in the center. I even learned a lot for myself. This helps children to understand just what science is and may plant the seed for them to explore scientific fields.

Nice hands-on activity for the kids. Mine are ages 15 & 11 and they both had fun. We were there for hours.

Nice day out but you will not be here too long. Our kids were ages 5 and 8 when we visited. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We would recommend.

An incredibly interesting and educational museum for adults and children alike. Exhibits change frequently and are interactive. Our grandchildren have spent hours there each time they have visited and have also enjoyed spending a lot of time in the gift shop!

This place is not a huge science museum like you would find in larger cities...it is however chock full of hands on experiments and activities. We took our 5 year old son there and as any 5 year old will do, we skipped along and stopped when he was intrigued. His attention span can dwindle quickly at times, but we... More
