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

This is a nice place to visit with smaller children. Anyone in the over 10 yr crowd might be bored with it as it is geared towards 3-8 year olds. You will only need an hour or two for your visit as it is very small.

My 3 and 4 year old girls absolutely loved playing here! My first impression was that it was a little small, but after seeing everything there is to do here, it is plenty large enough. We were there for 3 hours and did not experience everything there was to offer. My girls were completely entertained every minute we spent there,... More

My children loved 'Oh Wow' it is small enough for you to stand in the middle of the floor and observe all of your children playing at different locations. I wish it was a little cheaper but If you live in this area it is worth it because you don't have to drive a long distance for your children to... More

My daughter 10 now love it, though the younger the better. They change things around every so often and it is amazing seeing them learn when they can walk around and do things there!

OH Wow is the top family destination in Youngstown. Great fun for kids of all ages. Staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, always willing to show kids and their parents how best to interact with the activities. They are always expanding with new opportunities. If you can arrange to go when they have a hosted event, your learning experience will... More

My son and his wife and daughter were in town from Boston and we decided to take them there. We had heard much about it and it was a great visit. Their daughter is 3 1/2 and she had a blast. It's not real large inside, but there are many interesting stations which include music, weather, water, airplanes, video, architecture,... More

Was looking for something for my daughter and I to do on a chilly and dreary day. We decided to go to Oh Wow because we had heard it was nice and we had never been there. We both had a great time!! Although it is not super huge inside we spent over 2 hours there!! After we had seen... More
