I got a family membership for my daughter and we took her toddler girls. The place is huge with lots of great activities for kids of different ages. We had a great time.

My kids who are ages 10,8 and 7 had a blast here, but so did we! You need to plan for almost a whole day as this place is huge. It's a great day of learning and spending time as a family.

This used to be located in the OLD VETS Memorial on East Broad St. about 30 years ago, it was relocated to WEST BROAD ST in what was the Old Central HS.

The Eastern Palace in Columbus, Ohio is a pearl hidden in the East side. Dining is a lovely experience. The restaurant is clean and neat. The food is excellent , and the presentation was so nice. Service was fair, fast , and friendly. We will be returning soon.

If you like science or even if u don't this is a wonderful place to experience. Ride a sky cycle, experience the exhibits, be a weatherman in front of a screen with different backgrounds. The only reason I rated it a five was I couldn't rate it a 6!!!

This is a great place for the entire family. Everyone finds something different to enjoy. Please plan at least 6 hours. I use this as one of my locations for a stay-cation with my Grandson.

One of our fave things to do on vacay is visit the local science centers! Of the ones we have visited, this is one of the best! We go several times a year! If you are here when they have it, you MUST go to Big Machines Week! AWESOME!!!!
