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.

Fun place to visit for older kids (mine were 12/13) and adults. Lots of interactive exhibits that were also educational. Some reviews I read said that the off season wasn't a good time but we went in January and only one exhibit was closed for renovation and there were no crowds to deal with! We were able to enjoy all... More

I brought my 11 year old daughter here because I've been curious about it for awhile and found a deal on Groupon. We had a fun time. There are all kinds of simulators like a hurricane, lightning rod and even a roller coaster simulator. I also liked the simpler ones like the snow board, bubble makers and somewhat virtual air...

Went with my wife and a friend of ours. We had a great time. Very engaging and interesting exhibits and a lot of fun. I don't know how they get repeat business as once you go, you have kind of seen it, but it shoulden't be missed if you are visiting PCB.

This is a huge kids museum/play place. Had a great time with me and 5 kids. There is stuff for both little kids, and actually a lot that was fun for me as an adult also.
