Another disappointed attraction that Shreveport brags about. There was no organization at Sci-Port. Kids were allowed to run everywhere and there really was nothing there of interest. Parking was unsafe....right next to the railroad tracks and there were several homeless people sleeping under the bridge. I felt uncomfortable leaving my vehicle there. Don't waste time going there..... go to Dallas.... More

Your kids have so many different choices to make about what to do first or next. This place will keep them going for however long you are willing to stay. Just sit back and watch them laugh and have a blast playing with other kids or just themselves.

Great place to let kids (of all ages) explore for several hours. Love the hands on activities and open spaces. Plus, always love going to the IMax theater.

Kids had a great time, some of the exhibits are outdated or don't work but if you need an activity its cool. But definalty not worth the entrance fee. And don't get caught up in the hype of the IMAX movie, both kids fell asleep and the 30 minutes of underwater coral reefs.

Completely interactive and engaging for my son. Advanced mathematical concepts were taught using hands on activities that elementary kids could understand. My son even got to see a shark dissection and tough the shark and its parts. Ewww for me but he talked about what he learned for hours after.

My dad and I took our annual father and son vacation to Shreveport/Bossier city and we decided to see what Sci-Port is all about. Keep in mind my dad is 67 and I am 40 but we are both kids at heart. Well, to sum it up.....we had a blast. We lost track of time and before we even realized... More

I've been going here since my kids were little. They're all grown and gone now, but we still visit whenever we can. It's not just for kids! It's so much fun.

A great place for science exploration. A variety of exhibits with live shows at certain times. You have to get the information from the ticket booth. Has a few exhibits that are particular to Louisiana. They book traveling exhibits. There is also the IMAX dome theater that everyone loves. There is a fee for Sci-Port and a separate fee for...

This is a must-see for families traveling through the Shreveport-Bossier area. Set downtown on the riverfront, Sci-Port provides hours of fun for the whole family. Be sure to catch a movie in their IMAX Dome Theater and to grab a snack in their cafe area. Worth the price and time you will spend here!
