Amazing Science Museum!

I took my almost-2-year-old to this science museum & could not believe all there was to do! We spent the entire day exploring & could have stayed much longer! Highly recommend.

I've visited here several times over the past 20 years. 20 years ago, it was an amazing experience. Now, it feels like most of the exhibits are 20 years old. Many of them do not work (broken, missing the components needed to perform an experiment, etc.). They've also replaced several of the hands-on exhibits with "look only" exhibits, similar to... More

Great place for kids, They can play with all the attractions. Best part was the IMAX theater. They do need to repair and update some of the attractions.

this place is simply amazing. Its HUGE inside and had so much for us to see and do "hands on experiments" I loved that we could touch things. They also have a movie theater where we watched a movie about tornados.

We have been to several science museums across the country and this one is now my favorite! Even though we were there on Spring Break it was not very crowded so my boys could do any of the activities they wanted- which included several Segway rides!

Took the granddaughter. Displays are old, some don't even work. Needs a complete revamp, and continued improvements to draw people back there time after time. Really, a monitor, that came out when Atari started, for the kids puppet show.

This is a very detailed and quiet museum. The kids (ages 11, 8, and 4) enjoyed the different exhibits and rooms.

Just made our second visit with our ten year old son, we have gone for a day trip for spring break the last two years. Great way to spend an afternoon. Good mix of hands on and educational exhibits, and the layout is spaced out enough that it doesn't feel too cramped even when the place is filled to capacity.... More

Fun for all ages. We had a train tour. The Segway track is fun. There is a plane simulator & a space pod simulator w/ground control speaking to you. Don't miss the upper level w/the 50 yard dash & tug of war.
