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

Great way to spend an hour or two. Its fun, intriguing, hands on, and mind boggling for all ages. Great price for the amount the activities probably costed. Must go do.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

It's only a couple of bucks and there is enough to keep a mid-aged child entertained for two hours. I wouldn't recommend for younger than 5 because the attractions do require supervision and interaction - if you want to bring really young children, Skagit Valley children's museum is probably a better choice. However, if you only have one young one,... More

Until we were advised by a volunteer at the Bellingham Visitors Bureau we had no idea that we could walk from our condo to experience MindPort with our 6- year old grandson! What a find! Especially on a typically rainy winter day! The engineering interactive feats are challenging & fascinating...the rotating art displays are engaging & beautiful...and all of this... More
