This place is a must see to fully understand how much there is there to do and experience! The thought put into putting this place together is mind-boggling itself! Full of interactive displays using different artistic and scientific methods. Cheap to get in to spend some time too! Recommend for older and well-behaved kids.

So many cool things and you are always learning too. I went with my boyfriend but there were young children here too and families, great place for everyone to visit. Interactive learning is one of the best things in my opinion! I can't remember the exact cost to get in but i know that it wasn't much at all considering... More

I joined a person there with their children last week. I had walked in an the place was essentially empty. (school day) There was no one at the desk and I failed to notice the small sign on the counter that said admission was $2. While visiting with my friend, the employee (owner?) glared at us and hovered uncomfortably close.... More

My 13 year old granddaughter had a wonderful time with all the hands on science activities. Very well worth the low cost. It is conveniently located in downtown Bellingham where you can shop and eat nearby as well. Would highly recommend it to families with children.

There is so much to do in a relatively small space. My grandsons could have spent hours there. So much to do and see and experiment. Loved it. Fun for adults too. You have to go see it for yourself.

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...
