The Science Center is the best museum around Youngstown for families, however it is very small. The basement is basically empty, and the staff that works the back room were not helpful. However the upstairs has a lot of bang for its buck.

Oh Wow is a very clean and nice place, but it is small. My kids range from 9 to 5 years old and after about an hour and a half they wanted to leave. I would also suggest going during the week because it is very hectic when it is crowded due to the small space.

My daughter LOVES the "Wow Factory." There are endless ways to entertain here. The exhibits change regularly to keep it fresh. Everything is hands on and great for children of all ages.

Kids of all ages will love this museum. It is a great place to bring your grandkids, nieces and nephews. Let your inner child come alive and take advantage of all the adventures offered at this place. I can't say enough positive things about it.

This is a great place to take the kids for the day. You can pack a lunch if you like and stay for as long as you want.

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...
