Our three teenage guests set off to check out the museum and enjoyed the attractions for just under two hours, then they were ready to leave. This is a hands on museum with a target audience of families with preteen to young teenage children. Great for a rainy day outing.

Price was reasonable for four floors of fun. Place was loud but lots to keep a 9 year old interested. Not for small ones. Only a very few exhibits were not working, but they could use employees pointing out which direction to go.

This is the only upside down building we saw. Check the prices before you go because we experienced sticker shock. They have 3 small rides that you have to be a certain average height and weight to ride. Our daughter waited over 30 minutes to ride a virtual rollercoaster / flight simulator when there were only 10 to 12 people... More

The kids had a lot of fun with the laser tag. There were some issues with the laser tag equipment, some of it needs replacing. Overall, the kids (and adults) had fun on our trip. Jan 15 was a repeat visit for us, so we were familiar with most exhibits. Unfortunately, I was disappointed that there were several exhibits that... More

We visited the museum as a birthday gift for my daughter. It was a great educational experience and very fun! The only thing negative I would have to say is that it was kind of understaffed and there should have been someone walking around letting you know how to use the exhibits and what you should do to get the...

We visited here one day when it was raining. It was OK. We became bored quickly. There were some fun things. I think we payed about $100 for a family of 4. Not worth the money in my opinion, It was fun once. Would not visit again.
