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

Parents of children with food allergies BEWARE they allow familes to eat at tables in the exhibits/right next hands on activities. So kids are going to and from exhibits and their peanut butter sandwich or anywhere no designated area at all

We got there at 10am - when they opened. No people. We could do anything. The lego display was very excellent. Different science exhibits. We spent 3 hours here. Great price!

As far in things in the area it's good. My children enjoyed it at a birthday party they went to. It was something different for a party venue which was nice.

My parents had brought my kids when the dinosaur exhibit was there and everyone loved it. We went this past weekend and my young children had a good time. I was very impressed with the their moon walk exhibit. The kids loved it!!!

As somebody who has had four generations of family in Manchester, this is the best of history and science! Why shouldn't children in Manchester be inspired? We are!
