Fun for all ages

We took our 2 1/2 year old grandson and he had a blast. Especially with the vacuum tubes the shoot balls. There were a lot of different age group activities.

We have gone several times because we live 20 minutes away from it. We had a season pass one year. It doesn't change up so that was a bit of a waste in my eyes. The children love and cry when it's time to leave. There is a water area that children get soaked at. Bring extra clothes.

My daughter is 2 and she had a GREAT time! If you're planning a visit, I would suggest packing a raincoat and rain boots (or a change of clothes) -- there are some fun water activities for the kids to play with and they *will* get wet (or soaked if your kid is anything like mine.) :) There were some...

While the date of my visit say January 2015, I actually started volunteering back in June 2014 and have been there most of the summer. I went back to volunteering there again around Christmas after a busy semester in college and plan on volunteering there again this spring on some weekends! I gotta tell you, bring your kids here if... More

We took our 3 kids - 2,4,7 - and they had a great time. We had fun experiencing it with them. Not terribly expensive at $40. All of the staff was very friendly and engaged with the kids. If there is one negative it's a bit small. Plan on 2 hours to do everything in the place.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this little gem. Lots of interactive engaging working exhibits. Our grandchildren loved posing behind the desk in the "TV studio" to deliver the weather report. The music exhibits and water play spouts were also lots of fun. Other favorites were using an ATM machine, running the movies backwards and forwards in slow motion and... More

While this place is small, it provides a great educational experience. I am eighteen and I love this place. The people there are so amazing and helpful. I do agree that it can get a bit boring, but watch the schedule for special programs, some of them can get kids attention for hours. If you plan to go several times,... More
