Went with my two and seven year old for the Spring Break Holiday. What a big mistake!!!! Thousands and thousands ok unruly kids everywhere. Almost two hours online to get tickets. No kiosk or self-help machines to sped off the process. The place is very nice though.Very aired and well lighted, but again, too many kids. When try to participate... More

Me and my wife took our daughters here and they loved it. The science center is very educational. Plenty of parking and a nice staff.

Took my six year old grandson today and it just wasn't as good as I expected. There were lots of things for pre-schoolers and older children but not much interested him. There are much better museums.

For children of all ages, hands on educational activities. Even a small aquarium! Bob the Builder exhibit was great. Knowledgable and friendly staff.

I visited in Winter with my family and we had a very nice time. The Imax theater is simply amazing (we watched "Hubble") and quite an awesome experience. The activities here can keep kids entertained for hours. There is also a mini-zoo with fishes which are really nice to look at. The food is good and there is no shortage... More

Great time with the kids over MLK weekend. Got there as it opened on Saturday morning, and essentially had the place to ourselves for over an hour or so. Saw the watermelon movie which my three girls age 5-9 loved. Duct taped them to the wall, played with the puzzles, saw the animals, and learned a bit about alternative energy.... More

Overall our visit was ok, though the place was very warm. My biggest issue was that my family was not allowed to use our reciprocal membership from a participating museum we belong to because of what the woman at the admissions desk agreed was a misleading piece of information. Specifically, the website says this is a museum that requires you... More

Lots of fun for kids and adults. Plan on it being an all day visit if you want to see everything. A little pricey, but lots of fun.

This is definitely one of our favorite places to take our kids. Even if you don't have kids, GO! It is four floors of educational and interactive fun. We have been here a number of times and we always enjoy it and see or enjoy something we didn't before. We have so many favorites--too many to mention. Some are the... More
