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

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.
