Traveled here in March 2015. My husband and I decided we would check it out. Lots of interactive areas for the children, and learning for adults as well. The have a little reptile exhibit in the place as well.

Have been here several times. Always fun. Check for online deals, we ended up getting in for free! We were able to get a package deal with the traveling exhibit. Plus it's a beautiful space.

This is a great place to visit by yourself, or with a family. So much to see and learn. Also a lot of history at this location.

Loved it! It looked so small as we walked in but it's a huge space. So many exhibits That I am sure we missed more than a few. We visit science centers whenever we can and loved the variety here. Our kids ages 12, 9, 7 had a great day.

Well above expectations! Plan on spending a good 3 to 4 hours there, time goes quick! Children/parents both learn a lot while having a great time!

Science City NEVER gets old. It is SO amazing. Lots to do for young and old. I do wish there was an eatery inside Science City to grab a quick snack.

We had a great time here! Even my 13 and 17 year old had fun and I was worried about that.. My 9 year old loved it and didn't want to leave. They have an old remodeled train they can play on and he loved it. Don't miss it

This Science Museum is great for all ages. It is housed in the beautiful Union Station building. Lots of hands on exhibits to experience such as the wind tunnel, the musical instruments, Mr E's Hotel of illusions. The list of cool things goes on and on. A must do in Kansas City, Missouri.

I don't know who had more fun...the grandchildren or us. Grandpa rode a bicycle on a tight rope suspended two stories up. 4 year old got to fly helicopter. Everyone particpated in digging up dinosaurs.

We went as part of a field trip with 2nd graders. It was fun but a little chaotic. The museum hasn't changed much since our last visit 2 years ago. The kids zip all over the place looking for fun rather than investing time to learn. I miss the "travel through the human body" exhibit that was there years ago.... More
