I have two kids, infant and toddler boys, and they always have a great time when we come here. They have tons of educational exhibits and activities. My oldest loves the airplane building station and the giant floor piano the most, and the giant contraption they have in the main lobby. We took my wife's 12 year old sister to... More

As a medical professional and lover of all things scientific I am a big supporter of Sci-Port. I enjoy visiting with my young granddaughters and watching the amazement of learning how things work. The IMAX movies are very popular with all ages in our family. We have even been known to visit without the kids.

My kids, ages 8,6, and 5, really enjoy coming here. I learn something every time we come as well. The staff is wonderful and excited about teaching. The only problem I have is wanting to spend time with each child learning from each exhibit and not being able to.

We took our three grandkids here this summer and they thoroughly enjoyed it! (They are 6,6, and 7). Saw the IMax show and it was better than I ever expected. We had been there only a few minutes, when a gentleman walked up and starting showing the kids some science tricks that they could do. Very impressive. They even had... More

We spent the day at the Sci-Port and it was so much fun. There are hands on exhibits for young children (ours is three) as well as an Imax theater for movie goers of all ages. This was so much fun and we can't wait to go again!

I came to the museum with my daughter and grandson on Sunday when it opened at noon. It was the first day of shark week. They were studying the anatomy of sharks. I could have done without the dissection of a real shark in order to teach the kids about sharks. In this day and age, you can teach by... More

The moment you walk in the place captures you. So much is happening around you, you can't help but to get involved in the science. Every exhibit has you put your hands on to understand how it works. The solar system exhibit and the nature exhibit were some of our favorites. This place has an exhibit for every age group.... More

This is a wonderful place to bring children. I loved how interactive the exhibits are. I learned a lot when I just walked in the front door. My favorite part was the riverboat. Kids get to learn how it functions, and it has a working whistle. The IMAX Theater has the biggest screen of all of them in the world.... More
