The IMAX theater is not comfortable. The seats force you to be in an odd upright position that strains your neck to look at the screen, they should re-install the seats so that they will tilt back a bit. And cut the annoying lights shining in from the projection room? The planet Arium is just a room partitioned off with... More

We came here on a rainy Saturday, and it was insanely crowded! I probably would have liked it better if it had been quieter and we could have been more leisurely as we explored instead of being by each display because people were waiting behind us. There was a ton to do and see, and I'd like to come back... More

We have had a family membership every year for a long time. Memberships are a great value if you plan to go more than once or twice with 5 or more people. Also, a membership allows free entry into other science centers around the country. Our 19 grandkids all love going to Sci Port. There is a great area upstairs... More

This is an unusual place that affords the kids and adults here a look at things that they might never be able to experience otherwise. It is a valuable asset to the education of our children.

We started bringing grandchildren to Sci-Port almost 15 years ago. We have a great experience every time, and so do our grandchildren. Our youngest is four. There is always plenty to do that children enjoy, and we enjoy trying out different things along with them. Very educational. Lots of fun. The staff is excellent--never too busy to answer questions or... More
