We visited this museum with our 3 year old and our 1 year old and both of them (and us) had a great time. Pros: 1. Loved the show in the Planetarium.The narrator was funny, knowledgeable and sweet. 2. Loved the Dolphins movie at the Dome theater. Though the movie itself is a bit older, it was great to watch....

I took my grandsons 9 & 10 and my 13 year old granddaughter there in July. We had a late afternoon flight home and needed an activity that would keep us all cool as well as entertain us. This is a very hands on science museum. Many of the exhibits we're not working however there was so much to do... More

My husband and I took our two children ages 2 and 5 to the IMAX Dolphins movie before going to the museum. It was 45 minutes long and it held their attention the whole time! ( which is unusual!) the movie is played in their dome theater. The movie is a little outdated ( made in the 90's) but we... More

My son (5) old loves this place. There is lots for him to do and see to keep him occupied for hours. We often lunch in the courtyard (which needs a lot of TLC) and spend the day at the museum. Many of the exhibits need updating - some were there since I was a child - but much of... More

We live in Fort Worth and we were in town to visit family. We went with our daughter, son in law and grandson. Can I just say this place is AWESOME!?!? There is so much to do and see that it took us 6 hours to see it all, and then didn't want to leave! I would recommend this to... More

My son and husband love this place! You can ride Segway's on a course set out for you, with an adult worker next to you. They have a live science show as well as a Planetarium. You can spend all day there.

I took my three kids (11, 8 & 3) and we spent the whole day there! I didn't expect it to be as big as it was! There were tons of activities to do. My boys loved the Segway rides. They got to earn their 'license' by doing it three times! They became professionals! They say their second favorite thing... More

This is what used to be known as Omniplex many years ago. It has all kinds of hands on science exhibits and some other exhibits as well. There is so much to see and do in this one place, you need to plan for several hours. I think my son's favorite exhibit was the spaceship simulator.

I let my 9 year old daughter help with this review. She loved the place and so did my 7 year old. They are the reason we visited in the first place....

Before we paid all the money to get in it would have been nice to know just how many exhibits would be missing or downsized for renovations. Fun but didn't really meet expectations.
