Beautiful center. Quite appropriate for function. Proximity to other landmarks and areas for entertainment was a plus.

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

We stopped in at the Science Center as a rainy Saturday afternoon activity based on reviews. We did not have high expectations but we had hoped it would be interesting enough for 2 adults. 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

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.
