The museum is all hands on. You can see some animals, play in water tanks, (with your hands), climb a tree house, do science experiments and so much more!!! It was fun for grandmas and grandkids alike.

All kinds of science exhibits and activities. There's usually a special exhibit of some sort too. Parking is close and there are lots of restaurants, hotels, shops and museums nearby.

I love going to science city. I started going when I was in the 5th grade and continue to go as a college sophomore. There are many things to do and explore around Science City. I do wish that they would update a little more often so those who are frequent visitors may find many of the same activities but... More

I really enjoyed Science city. I went and didn't have any kids with me and it was still educational and fun. I suggest anyone who loves science or dinosaurs should visit. I loved Mr. Einstein at the entrance. The shops had really nice gifts for children.
