We went with our 4 and 2 year old and the staff were very attentive. However, I'd recommend it for older children that can do more of the exhibits on their own. The exhibits are actaully very interesting and you'll want to take your time to read through and try each one. So with little kids we were more distracted... More

An amazing space melding hands-on science with art and wonder. Great wooden contraptions and music makers! Everyone in there was having a blast when we were there. My 12-year-old had to be dragged away from the tornado maker. All in all, a memorable experience, well worth the 2 dollar admission cost.

I love this place. If you are familiar with the Exploratorium in San Francisco, this is a smaller, homier version of that place. It has all kinds of cleverly built experiments and displays for kids that are educational and fun to use. Kids love them. Adults too, but for the adults there is a great art gallery too. The work...

Liked the low price, and the owners / hosts were very friendly and helpful, but you do need to ask them. They don't follow you around, which is nice. Fun for kids about 3yrs old and up. Fun for adults too. Very quiet, for the most part. There are some things that make noise. If you are downtown with your... More

We loved this place!! It was only $2 a person. It isn't huge and pretty lowkey which made it a better draw then the science center. We have four kids ranging from 6 to 12. All were entertained as well as the parents. Fun place!!

For a couple of dollars you get hours of hands on (educational) entertainment for yourself and all the children in your family. We took two of our grandchildren, 14 year old granddaughter and 4 year old grandson. We were as enchanted as they were with everything there ( and I'm a physics major)

Walked by this place and discounted it as an art gallery until I noticed the water-table. Inside, interactive exhibits built with the craft of fine furniture and fun! It's not big and not science-center glitzy but that's a large part of the attraction. And only $2 admission - what a deal.

I spent a couple of hours at Mindport with my 14 yr old daughter. We enjoyed all of the exhibits and had a few good laughs. Only $2 admission, great value!! And the exhibits are locally made.

Bring the kids - you and they will have a fun time trying different little experiments. It's a fun hour or two and for only $2 each well worth it. SStreet. Parking only so bring $1+ in change for the meter.

What a great, unique find. Hard to describe what this place is but if you are in downtown Bellingham definitely check it out. It is a great hands-on experience for kids and adults. It sort of combines physics,science, music, art and logic. Each display has a binder that you can read if you want to know about the physics behind... More
