We went here on vacation to walk around and explore with our daughter. It was very interesting and a lot to see. It was 4 floors. They do have elevators that you can take or the stairs. Be prepared to spend a few hours there.

Great place to take the kids anytime of the year but especially during the summer. They have great exhibits that change a few times a year and the planetarium is fun too!

I went on a First Friday adult night and it was pretty cool :) I'm a teacher and had only ever been there on a field trip.

I came here for a work event and the setting was great. In addition to great food there are a lot of fun exhibits for you to check out. Most are geared at children but they are pretty fun for adults at night when you have had a few drinks.

Cannot exactly review the Center, because we never went inside. We were visiting Phoenix in late April 2015 and noticed that the Football Hall of Fame had a temporary exhibit. With great anticipation, we entered and got in line to purchase tickets. It was then we noticed the admittance fee - in addition to the $17 Adult General Admission ticket... More

OK, we have visited similar sites in Paris, Wien, Barcelona, Belgium, etc., but this one in PHX is a bit different in a way that it has a soul... I've got the impression that someone put their dreams and extra energy while designing the area. The concept which attracts youngsters as well as adults is quite simple, but very clever... More

This center is definitely geared towards children, but I did enjoy myself as well. Tons of hands on activities for everyone to try! A great learning experience for everyone! We viewed the 3D movie about living throngs and that was very interesting! A bit pricey, but worth the time to see!!!

It's a small science centre, but they do very nicely with the budget they have. Planetarium is great.

A very nice and eye appealing place but not for adults without kids. It is definitely a kid oriented place. I took in the IMAX theater and Planetarium at additional cost but I felt they were worth it.
