Good place to take grandchildren

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

This is a great escape for kids and "kids-at-heart", especially on a rainy/windy/dusty day. It is a highly interactive day trip, allow yourself the time to really enjoy it. We liked it enough to get the annual pass which is reasonably priced and can be used at other venues around the nation.

Lots of hands on activities for kids. We come often and I always have to make my kids leave. They never get tired of the activities, and could stay all day. Very educational. They often have themes that are very good.

I love this place. My kids love this place. So much to do and learn! We go at least twice a year, if not more. Worth the money and time.

We had a great time checking out all this Museum has to offer. The many levels and interactive displays kept us busy for a few hours. We were fortunate to get to experience the space bubble demo - it was fun! Did not get a chance to see any of the movies but would love to come back and see... More

I took my 4 grandkids ages 11-8 and they all loved it, can't wait to go back. My son is a science teacher and he loved all the things the Museum had to offer and try out.

Lots of hands on activities for preschool through 6th grade, and the kids always love the live critters. The Omni Theatre is a great venue for the many nature features shown there. If you lean towards motion sickness choose a seat in the lower rows. Varying attractions throughout the year to encourage annual memberships.A good place for budding scientists to... More

I've taken my granddaughter there twice in the last year. She is not quite three years old, so many of the exhibits are lost on her. However, the children's play place, for children age five and under, keeps her busy for hours. I'm eager to see her grow into the other attractions like the Omni movie theater and the "real"...
