We took our 6 year old grandson to the SEE Science Center for the first time over school vacation week. There were so many things to see and do on two floors, it was hard to know what to zero in on first. Wonderful fun exhibits interesting to adults as well. I thought the hockey goalie response test was great... More

Took 2 of our grandchildren (age 4 & 2) to the museum. It's a great place for you kids. Lots of hands on stuff and good for different ages.... It's a little pricey for a one time visit. The annual membership is a great deal if you live in the area. They were fascinated with the million plus lego replica... More

We found this place on our way to somewhere else, but we're so happy we went! It's close to the highway and there is a good restaurant within walking distance. The museum is two floors and has fun activities. The kids we went with were 2-5 years old and they had a blast. They enjoyed the "Moon Walk" (where a... More

Lots of interactive displays which the kids(11,13,16) had fun trying out. We are big fans of LEGO so the Millworks exhibit was a big draw. It really is amazing. The museum building is party of the original mill. We did not pay for our visit because we are members of another science museum but really enjoyed ourselves.

Hands on fun for children. Best suited for preteens. Went with family that was visiting from South Carolina. Both girls (aged 3 and 5) had a blast exploring the place.

My two boys (ages 6 and 8) and I visited here recently. We had just over an hour before it closed, and I'd say that was about the right amount of time, although I could see us spending another 30 minutes to an hour possibly. I loved how hands on it all is. Definitely a place where kids are encouraged... More

We dropped my wife off at the Merrimack outlets and I brought the kids (3, ages 11, 8, 6) up to the SEE Science Center. The kids had a great time. Yes, some of the 'science' interaction objects were pretty simple, but letting the three kids muck about with things in their own time together made the time pass quickly.... More

My husband and I took our 8 yo second grader here last Sunday morning. I had read several reviews beforehand, so I thought it would be a good fit for a family fun day. After being there I have no idea how some reviewers said they spent 3-5 hours there! We were there for exactly 75 minutes and we saw/touched/interacted... More

I visited for the first time with my Lego-obsessed 4-year-old son and my 10-going-on-16-year-old daughter, as well as my mother. At first glance past the door, I was worried that my daughter would be bored, but she was pretty happy to go around and work the displays on her own while I followed her little brother around. She was a... More

This place is fun, more if you have kids that like to touch things (what kids don't?) There are many things to learn about while you are touching them as there are placards on all items explaining them. Learn about pulleys as you pull yourself up in the air on a chair, play with the plasma ball and all of... More
