Came here with 2 young boys 10 & 12, both had great fun. Found it to be a little expensive, as all visitor attractions in Arizona ( compared to museums in UK) other exhibits and cinema all extra cost. Half a days fun.

So many things for all ages. I went with my boyfriend and 2 friends. We are all under 30 and had a blast. We stayed for 4 or 5 hours. The I Max movie- The Galapagos one was amazing!

Waited in line forever; one associate working the general admissions desk. Check Groupon or online for coupons prior to visit. I did it while in line. Displays and movies were good but I hate having to pay extra for movie or "added" experiences. School day so there were a lot of little kids running all over screaming and yelling. Teachers... More

Had a work event here during a conference. Very neat place/atmosphere. Lots to explore. Well worth the visit. Would love to go back with the family one day.

We had no idea that we would enjoy a day inside the science center... It was hot outside in March and we needed something fun to do on our visit to Phoenix - thinking we were headed to Roosevelt Row to see the crazy artist village but Monday in the Row is a ghost town - every place closed... so...

Our visit started off by waiting about an hour in a line of about 70 people. There were only two cashiers at the main entrance which had computers for several others. A manager (powerless key holder???) walked past the line twice and was totally uninterested in the slow pace of the line. We were curious about why they would fail... More

This is a fun and educational place for both children and adults. They have some exhibits that stay the same and other special traveling exhibits, so we've gone a number of times with our grandkids, who have thoroughly enjoyed it. They also have great movies. One I especially liked was about coral reefs.

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
