Scientopia is one of the rare finds in Napa. It is a wonderful place where you can take your children to explore science in a fun and friendly atmosphere. They have actually come several times to my child's school to help host a Science Night and it has never disappointed.

We had our 16 month old with us on a quick visit to Napa. We had a few places in mind for when he needed to run around and just play. We found this site online and thought we would give it a try. It's about what we expected based on reviews and what we saw online. Our 16 month... More

I had visited Scientopia two years ago and had great memories. But this time we visited it had less for us to keep our attention and easily became board. It entertained us for only an hour. It might be great as a summer camp? As it seems like that is were their time and attention is spent?

My toddler son enjoyed the exhibits especially the train table. My six year old admitted she was bored. Good place for kids to burn off a couple hours of energy.

We spent about an hour here with my 20 month old son. He is extremely active so he had a blast with their toddler room close to the desk. It had a little ball pit, big soft blocks, and one of those cars that he could ride along a little track. In the back, there were several stations for all... More

Just visited with my four kids- ages 8, 6, and 4 year old twins. Hard for me to find a place for one adult to keep track of all little ones safely in unfamiliar surroundings- this was perfect! I could easily watch them without worrying about safety, and the other adults in my party went wine-tasting. There is so much... More
