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

Da Vinci packs a lot into its space. We visited during the special "Space" exhibition, which had a lot of computer-based learning exhibits and a few hands-on activities. The second floor is all about the principles of science and was as fun for me as it was for my son. Good through young teens for sure; high school age might... More

Good for younger children. A number of fun, hands-on activities. A bit expensive for what you get, but still worth a visit.

Nice facility but needs organizing. It is difficult to know where you have been and what you have already looked at. There is little continuity. For children, there is too much to read and not enough hands-on.

Nice, but too expensive. Can not compare to other centers that cost a lot less. Not much there. Volunteers there were great. Science part good but small.

This is a great place for kids and adults of all ages. They do a good job explaining all types or science. There are lots of special programs available for kids and special exhibits, check their website.

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.
