I took my 5 year old to see the exhibits. The home building area was very interesting, with hands-on activities for him to try. Our favorite part was the technology area where he could see himself on the big screen interacting with animations. This is definitely set up for children who are a little older since several of the exhibits... More

Great place that has lots of fun ways to learn about science. It can be a great date place, or an excellent place to take your kids, nephews, brothers, or whomever it may be. Regardless of you bring you quickly find yourself engulfed in the games, toys and displays. Be sure to make it to the weather simulator while it... More

My daughter and I took my two granddaughters (ages 9 & 12) here recently and had a blast. There was so much to see and do - more than we could take in just an afternoon but a place where we will definitely return. The exhibits were well done and there was lots of interaction to keep us all engaged.

This is a great place to take your kids. So much to see and learn. It is a hands on kind of place for the entire family. Don't miss it.

I've been to the Arizona Science Center on many occasions and my visits have always been a great experience. The facility itself is impressive, a very nice building with lots of interesting features that you can enjoy for the price of general admission. Before you visit, Arizona Science Center you should find out what the featured exhibits are. The featured... More

This is one of the best and also one of the noisiest children science center anywhere. There are many different hands on things to do that it will keep a young child busy for hours. There are several floors and each area had something of interest to do or see from giving one the experience of standing in a windstorm... More

This is a Great Museum in the Desert. It has everything. Also close to Pizzeria Blanco and Nubuo Restaurants. Just a short walk away. Also, close to the METRO.

My children (ages 3,7, and 11) all loved it. There was so much hands on stuff for all of them to do. We were there for hours and still didn't do everything. We went in the middle of the week and it was not crowded at all. I can see where it would not be as fun during peak times... More
