I took my son to the museum for the day. He loved it so much, there was even a place for smaller children to play. It was very kid friendly and educational with a lot of different stations to play at. If your child is between 2-10 I'd defiantly suggest taking them here. The price is low and won't cost... More

Not a must see attraction, but it was a nice experience for a spur of the moment outing. Very few people while we were there, which was nice, as all the exhibits are hands on.

If you have kids or grand kids and have run out of ideas...go to the Science Factory. Spoiler alert, once you go the kids will want to come back again and again!

With the rainy days in Eugene/Springfield it's nice to have a fun place to go! The kids never tire of the exhibits and the adults enjoy their time also. If you can make it over when the sun is out, be sure to bring a picnic and enjoy it along the water. Plenty of room to play and run!

The best learning is by doing. The exhibits in this facility are interactive, fun and informative. Handy location, easy access and ample parking. Modest admission fee.

My boys loved it when they were younger. It was interactive, informative, & hands-on learning about science! It gave my younger son a fascination for biology, & kept my older son focused on positive things. Over all, I'd say it's a wonderful place to take curious minds!

Beautiful setting and amazing fun safe fascinating activities that kept the attention of my 4 and 10 year old grandchildren. Their mom and I joined them at each site and giggled and enjoyed the shadow room so very much! The staff were kind and gentle and seemed as happy to be there as we were.

Admittedly, we just ducked in here to get out of the sun at Alton Baker park. It's a small place, a humble place, but its jam-packed with stuff to do. My kid is less than 2 so he mostly played with the elaborate train track set-up, but I found plenty of things to amuse myself. Although, admittedly, I am a... More

This place was within walking distance of our hotel (La Quinta) and right on the U of O campus. We are suckers for some science educational fun and this place had enough to keep the kids busy and active for a while. We started the visit with a film in the planetarium about the Google Lunar X Prize. It was... More
