After trying in vain to bring my daughter to the antique store, we decided to bring her to Mindport and let her creative juices run wild. She is a hands-on sort of toddler, so we figured Mindport would be the best. It is! There are a multitude of things for kids of all ages (including me) to see, touch, and... More

We stopped here while out on a sight seeing drive. For a small $2 fee we got to visit this interactive playground. There are many interesting and creative projects, all hand crafted by the staff. It was entertaining and informative and well worth the visit! Families and children would love this place, and even though we are an older couple...we... More

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.
