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

We took our 2- and 4-year old there on New Year's Eve, where we enjoyed the ball drop. It was $36 for the four of us (I think the 2 year old was free), which I thought was kind of expensive for less than 2 hours of play. But they did have fun in the area designed for small children,... More

Turns out, it was not. We spent about 30 minutes inside looking at the various exhibits. The planetarium exhibit was interesting but I was hoping for... More
