Great place!

We visited here while in town visiting family. My boys (ages 8 and 6) absolutely LOVED the Center. There is SO very much to do and see in each and every room - amazing!

Would absoiutely agree with a previous review about this being more interesting to younger kids (less than 10) and the ticket line a bit long because there is only one attendant. For the number and quality of exhibits, we think that the entrance fee is a bit pricey. Just paid to view IMAX to let our kids enjoy.

The name is rather misleading as the place is really a children musuem and not a science center. Yes rather nice for the kids but so much for adults. Getting in was a nightmare as there was only two people selling tickets and the line was rather long. One would think it would be like the going to a movie,... More

It was great for my kids, but my friends kids who were over 11 they rather sit in the theater. It's a wonderful place to learn, experiment and explore. Fun ways to get them to learn about science. You need to spend all day here. There are lot of fun and good restaurants around the science center. You don't need... More

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...
