I remember going to the Science Center as a kid on field trips...it was always my favorite place to go because the exhibits were so interactive and interesting and the gift shop had everyone's favorite: astronaut ice cream. As an adult, I still enjoy coming here. I do think the exhibits are of mixed quality. Some are great, and others... More

Nice visit, didn't stay as long as I would have liked. Kids will love the hands on activities, the only downfall was there were too many broken down exhibits.

We had great fun as a family. A lot of the exhibits are fun for Parents or Children. If you have the time to go then highly recommend this place

We drove an hour and a half to get here from Indiana. The parking cost $5 and we were under the interstate next to the river. The area seemed "shady" (not safe) and several men were sleeping on a concrete slab. Inside the place is extremely filthy and the only thing that a toddler can do here is the kid... More

This is not the best kids museum we have been to but it was entertaining for my 7 year old. He really enjoyed the 7 and under area with the city bus and ambulance play. The upper areas had more mature content related to reproduction, STD's, etc. It was worth the stop since we were in the area for the... More

This place was fun! So much for kids (and grown ups) to see, touch and do. We all learned something new on our visit to the Science Center.

The science center was good but it wasn't much for younger children. The first floor is dedicated to the younger crowds and all of the other floors are geared towards preteen/teen. It was a good time for our child to play in the water, drive a bus, go down a slide, and do some additional sensory things but for the... More

Great museum, very interactive. Night hours on Friday and Saturday make it a good evening option. Kids had a great time. Helpful staff that got the kids thinking.

I bought the family pass and it was well worth every penny. I can come back as much as I want for a year. My kids can't wait to come back because the place is got so many thing that they didn't have time to do them all. They were very interested in science before and now they are even... More
