We hadn't been to the DaVinci center with our children, ages 3 and 1 until recently. My eldest had a birthday party here in February and it was so much fun. He asked to go back again & again and we have literally been to the center monthly since then, with the last two trips, taking both boys. They love... More

Was expecting more displays for age appropriate teenagers, most displays were based for much younger visitors. Maybe they should rethink their displays.

We went on school break with three boys ages from 4 to 8. Each section had many exhibits that they could not wait to explore. All three of them loved that virtually everything could be touched and was interactive. The water areas where you could build a dam to stop the flow of water as well as the location where... More

My husband & I took our 3 year old twin grandchildren & they had a great time. I was very surprised because I thought they were too young. It is a great place to visit & I definitely would go back again

We live nearby and taking the grandkids to DaVinci has become a frequent outing. They love all the permanent exhibits as well as the featured ones. On our last outing, we caught a chemistry demonstration done with pumpkins, etc. for the Halloween season. Even the 15-year-old liked it. And, they always find something interesting to buy in the gift shop.... More

In most situations, a museum designed primarily for children is also OK for adults. This one was not. The displays were intended to be instructional but many were in such poor condition that they either did not work at all or really failed to provide good demonstration of the principles they were supposed to show. No special exhibits were open... More

From the outside, the center looks larger then it actually is. The main level has one large room of exhibits and the upper level has a few more. We had the place mostly to ourselves since it was a school day and no field trips were scheduled so it was very quiet. They did have one staff member to answer... More

I had gone here with a friend and her son who is 7 yrs old last month. He had been there before and was looking forward to the tank where you can touch the sea creatures. This area was under construction, as well as MANY other stations within the center. We would go to one section and at least one... More

Nice experience for young children, but not so much for teens. It was fun and my son did enjoy the leverage pulley. If you have elementary aged children, fully recommend this experience. If they can get a love for science early in their youth, it will carry forward with them and the Da Vinci Science Center is doing just that.... More
