My wife and I take the children here as often as possible. It is a great learning experience for them and many of the exhibits change throughout the year, offering new things for the kids. There is also a restaurant in the facility so you won't have to leave for lunch.

I visited this location on the recommendation of a friend and was very pleasantly surprised. There are multiple very interesting demonstrations going on covering various subjects. Science subjects to interest everyone, done in a very engaging and simple manner. I was most impressed by the planterium display. The person giving the talk was extremely well informed and able to speak... More

I took some kids with special limitions but they really enjoyed! Something interesting. They have fun for kids from 5 to 17 years. As a parent I also enjoyed.

Probably the best educational museum in the area. Had higher expectations for the place, but it wasn't bad. Fun afternoon with my elementary school age child.

This place is AMAZING!!! There is so much to do for the whole family. From the littlest one to the Most-Mature one. There are so many hands on exhibits that you can literally spend HOURS and STILL not get to do everything. Guaranteed good time. A little pricey, but I promise you won't mind!

Highly recommend. If you go, plan to stay awhile. The children will not be ready to go when you are. Lots of activities. When I went this year on a field trip with my grandsons school, we watched a brain dissection. Very cool. He compared the sheep brain to the human brain. Glad I watched.

We have taken our grandchildren here numerous times, in fact so often that we have bought an annual membership. The children are ages 8-15, and all of them have a great time when we bring them. The exhibits are very much "hands-on" for the little ones, and so they are kept busy while their older siblings roam freely. We adults... More

My boyfriend and I took a spontaneous road trip to Shreveport (from Dallas) without much planning. It was my first time and to be honest I was not that impressed with what Shreveport had to offer. Tons of business spaces, no businesses. I could only wonder what happened to this once, seemingly bustling, city. Out of the two days we... More

I think one of the best ways to tell how good a place really is, is how they react to a bad situation. While, being 100% honest, we didn't go to the Sci-Port building itself, but we did see their traveling exhibits. The reason was simple, the roads and parking lots around the Sci-Port were flooded by the Red River,... More

This is an amazing attraction for families. It's a 'hands on' science venue. The faces of children exploring our incredible world is priceless. The entrance fee is minimal, and it's huge. I took my son and his family while I was there on vacation. We spent over 3 hours just looking at everything and interacting with several displays or computer... More
