Took our 2 1/2 year old granddaughter. She had a blast, and especially enjoyed the news desk microphone, and the veterinary clinic. She even sat through the whale IMAX movie without a peep!

Saw an advert for museum in a brochure and decided to pay a visit. Initially didn't think it suitable for two seniors but pleasant member of staff took the time to tell us what was on offer so decided to pay our money and have a look round. Plenty of interactive activities on offer for kids but must admit to... More

This place seemed more exciting from the outside. Needs updating. Lots of interesting things. My teenager enjoyed but just seemed old. Not horrible.

This used to be one of my fave places when I was younger! I took my daughter who is 4 and she loved it but, I hated that a lot of the exhibits didn't work. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable but I wasn't impressed sadly.

I took my 4 year old and 12 year old granddaughters to visit. There were many sections... Health, science, travel, just to name a few. They played, learned, and enjoyed the visit. We were there about 2.5 hours and they could have stayed longer. While there they saw a reptile show, made huge bubbles, saw aquariums, sat in a space... More

There is always something happening for adults and kids at the Science Spectrum Museum! The occasional special exhibits are always very interesting and educational. Great books and related merchandise end a pleasant visit every time.

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
