Four floors of fun for people of all ages

Great hands-on fun for everyone! The eco system tour in the basement is a must see. There is fun to have in the whole building and terrific IMAX movies.

Lets see, I need a place to keep children busy, so I can sit and take a break. The Science Spectrum fits the bill. Imax theatre, rooms loaded with science info, a store which sells experiments, and toys. Vending machines! I'm in heaven, have fun kids, I'll be here in the lobby waiting for you! Thank you God!

My boys ages 4 and 2 loved the children's museum. They played for several hours. The kids were able to pretend they were hosting the news, pretend they were veterinarians and run a grocery store. It was a great rainy day activity!

I could easily spend an entire day here. Though I recommend a minimum of 3 hours to get to see almost all of the museum. They have a wonderful variety of hands-on science activities geared toward children, but I saw many adults playing with the different interactive exhibits. Someone on here complained about the museum being outdated---well good news! It's... More

There are interesting attractions throughout: the butterfly exhibit, the Critter Fest, etc. My children have always loved visiting. Many of the activities are the same each time, but they always do well in rearranging them and adding a few new items. It's a great place to take visiting family for a fun-filled day activity.

A fun interactive kid friendly museum with IMAX theater. Lots of science displays and welcoming exhibits. A great gift shop is housed here as well. You can spend the day here.

This place is great for kids and adults. There are a ton of science activities that you can do that just seem like a game and are fun. Plus, the Omni Max theater is very cool with great documentaries playing pretty often.

Although the aquariums kacked, the museum and theater were good. Really enjoyed the theater, the screen is dynamite

Trying to kill a little time and went to Omni theatre. Was a disappointment to see 'robots' boring for 4d thought it was going to be about a robot show, not how they were made. About a 45minute view of 'how it made'. Took a tour thru the museum while we were there killing time. Not really much for adults,... More
