There is a wide variety of hands on exhibits for the whole family!! My kids and I always spend way more time here than we plan on.

This place offers many hands on science activities for children and adults to explore at their own pace. There are always volunteers available to provide support and assistance in the area. I love the 'living animals and fish". The active bee hive is my personal favorite. Plenty of parking. . .location a little tricky. Reasonably priced for a positive experience... More

We were passing through on vacation and wanted to find a quick stop to let our son do something for an hour or so. We read good reviews so decided to stop by. As mentioned in a few other reviews, don't pay attention to the old school building look. Once inside, everything is hands-on and amazing! The staff is great... More

We loved the math and science center. It looked very unassuming from the out side, but it was packed with fun things for us to experience. We loved it, our kids loved it, and we still talk about how much fun it was. This was an off-beat thing to do - but one of the highlights of our trip.

Don't be fooled when you drive up to this and find it nestled in an elementary school. This place is GREAT! We actually ended up visiting twice while on vacation in Mesa, Colorado (about an hour away). This center has dozens and dozens of hands on, interactive science displays that engage children (and adults). We have six kids age 4... More

Really some unique experiments and demonstrations. Adult guides are there to heighten the experience. Even small kids can benefit. But probably more appropriate for 9-12 year olds. However, adults can enjoy as well.

This used to be a small elementry school. It is strangely a very interesting place well worth going out of one's way to visit. It doesn't look like much at first glance, but it is fascinating and the quality and quantity of science that is there is surprising. This in not just a place for children ... a college professor...

I took my extended family there last week and we all had a great time. Everybody from the 6 yr old to the grandma learned something new and had fun doing it. Price is very reasonable and there is a large variety of things to do and see.
