Small but interesting

Great place for kids, and I learned a thing or two as well. Nice interactive exhibits and live aquarium tanks. Beautiful grounds to explore outside.

OK place with many hands on things for the kids. But all in all not kept up well and not much to see.

Directed more for kids camps and kids, it's fine to spend less than an hour here. You can pet the small sharks at the exhibit.

We have watched this small science center expand and grow, while preserving the amazing history of the area. Thursday's in July we can enjoy live music in a tent outside. Very nominal fee, food and drinks to purchase . The setting can't be beat. Hopefully the thunderstorms will avoid us

We went on a rainy day, not realizing how much of the experience is outside. My kids enjoyed the inside and the scavenger hunt, but since this is right on the coast would have liked to explore the park and my kids would have enjoyed the playground. Inside is small but unique. Without the outside activities, only takes 2 hours... More

Good for kids (of all ages), can easily spend about 1-2 Hrs here. There is a nice simulator of a ship's bridge that was broken. Kids had a nice time learning about crabs. The staff seemed a little unfriendly.

Awesome hands on experiences with ocean creatures. Interactive, interesting programs with friendly, knowledgeable staff (Amanda T. Is our favorite!) beautiful woodland and seaside trails. Tidal pools and marshland. So many things to do and see. Bring a lunch and blankets...enjoy the playground and picnic area. Odiorne State Park is a gem!
