It was nice to see the planetarium show but after that not much in there to do. They charge $6 a person which if you didn't see the show you would be through it in 30 minutes tops. Ok for small kids.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit! We came at a time when the museum wasn't very busy and received a great personal tour! Awesome artifacts! Excited to learn about 3D printing capabilities and looking forward to future additions! We'll definitely be back!

There were lots of interactive exhibits. Our nephew (4) had a wonderful time. The cost is reasonable. The observatory was not open when we went. Be sure to call for hours because they do seem to change occasionally.

I thought it would be much larger but was disappointed with the size for the price paid. There are flight and landing simulators with out fee and a planitarium showbut overall was not happy with the price paid.

We had a great time but it was very small. I think they may be renovating. Had fun on the dog fight simulator. The planetarium was nice. They show different movies throughout the day. I recommend doing the science center and then taking a stroll on the river walk and visiting the small park across the street.

My kids made several visits to the Science Center but I had never been. I am glad I took time to swing by one day for a quick visit and I was impressed. Columbus is fairly small but features like the Science Center help make sure we don't feel left out. A great facility and area of interest for the... More

This has our second visit to the Coca-cola space science center. The first time was for a Starwars convention. This time we were killing time while in columbus. If you have gone to NASA in Houston or Cape Canaveral you will be disappointed.

We came to Columbus to see our son graduate from Fort Benning, we came home with some historic knowledge. We visited the Center with 3 teenagers and they were fascinated with the star movie and the little rocket rides. They had a blast.

everything is designed for children under the age of 13. Good displays and interactive games just not for the older group I took.
