We enjoyed a day at the Science Spectrum with our five-year-old and three-year-old grandsons. There were all kinds of amazing hands-on activities for them, and plenty of things that interested me as well. We saw a live reptile show, learned all about space travel, did some unique physics activities, enjoyed the Imax movie, and there were many more things we... More

We were here with our 7 year old grandson and were looking for something to do, and the science museum provided a nice two hour activity. The activities are fun and we really enjoyed ourselves, but you can tell this museum is old - literal wear and tear in many areas of it. Still, it was fun and for me... More

I've been coming to the Science Spectrum ever since I was in second grade, and they were at the old location on 50th Street. My mind was blown whenever I came in 1993 at the current spot. There were new exhibits and the Omnimax was still in its infancy. Just like any other science exhibit or museum, it looks like... More

We love coming to the Science Spectrum because it seems like every time we go, we find something new. We like that you can spend a whole day there. They have activities for babies-seniors! We also like the birthday party packages they offer and like that all of the staff are helpful and friendly.

Everyone is always so nice and friendly and there are really so many things to do you could spend the entire day. It is not only fun but very educational. Oh yes do not forget the movie which is always an experience.

We started out as members when our son was small. He's now 34 and with two kids of his own, we started full-on memberships for them also. We use this membership so much, I sometimes feel we're taking advantage. The grands (4 and 23 months) are so hooked we can hardly keep them away. I highly recommend the Science Spectrum... More

I love bringing my son here. He is not yet 2, but they have an entire area that caters directly to his age group. There are so many fun and interesting things for all ages to experience!

This is a wonderful place to take your grandchildren. They have special exhibits on a regular basis. They also have movies geared towards children.
