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

Fantastic learning and interactive place for kids. They are always bringing in new exhibits and the interactive displays for kids is really cool.

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

Good downtown place to visit and check out what cool kid-like things there are to check out. They also have a IMAX.

Took the family for the day and we had a great time. My six year old couldn't decided what to do first and jumped from exhibit to exhibit trying to do everything. My daughter had a good time and enjoyed many of the science exhibits. We all loved the Hubble Telescope IMAX experience. We were there most of the day... More

You could spend three hours at this place but you wouldn't want to. The kids had fun, but I you ask me was it a deal/worth it $60 plus dollars for just the Sci-Port not the Imax included. I would have to say no. Younger than 13 years of age would enjoy more.
