Great place to go and see a round movie to get the feel that you are their, or ride a rollercoaster at the fair, or see marine life as if you were their. They also have displays in the back at certain times. Great place to spend so great time.

Three floors of science fun for all ages. My two year old really enjoyed making large bubbles and there is a under 5 play area complete with water table, a grocery store, a music room, and a veterinarian where the kids examine stuffed animals and review xrays. It is really cute. On a cold or rainy day a great place... More

They have an IMAX theatre there and they play a lot of documentaries and discovery shows. Not to expensive to get in and also has a lot for kids to do.

We always enjoy a visit to the Science Spectrum/Omnimax. My boys love the exhibits, and I enjoy the films at the Omnimax! It's definitely worth the visit.

We enjoy the science museum and Omni almost every time we visit Lubbock and it never gets old. Fun for children and adults, with 3 floors of exhibits, many of them interactive. Special section for under 5's, so little ones can get their wiggles out. Omni always has something good showing.

I've never had a bad time at the Science Spectrum. Usually I will take my family for one of the special events like Critterfest or Bubble Fest but have gone to just to watch a movie. The educators are knowledgable. I advise to go during early in the week to avoid crowds.

It has some great interactive exhibits. The issue I had was that the area designed for younger children to play (under 5) doesn't allow older children in, so my 3 year old couldn't enjoy those age-appropriate exhibits because my 8 year old was with me. While I understand the purpose ad value of having a small area just for younger... More

The Science Spectrum Museum is a must see place, especially for kids. Most all the exhibits are hands on for kids. My grandkids have been there many times and never get tired of going. It's a little bit pricey, but worth it.

I have visited the Spectrum on sevearal occasions. Each time is a new experience. Not only is fun for all ages, it is very educational for all. Each time the grand kids visit, it is one of the firest places they want to go. Always changing exhibits makes this a special venue.
