Great museum that offers many hands-on activities for kids of all ages. There is an area upstairs just for kids 5 and younger. Down stairs there is a tinkering studio where kids get to take apart and build lots of fun crafts and there are lots of cool animals to check out. Overall it's a great museum in the heart... More

This is a great museum where everything is interactive. There is something fun for all ages. Sadly a few exhibits were damaged however most of them were working. The museum is in a great location in the downtown River Market area and is good value for money.

We visited the museum with our four kids: ages 12, 9, 5, and 20 months. We went on a Tuesday in March, so it was not too busy--perfect! The older kids went with Dad and had a great time at every exhibit, testing things out and experimenting with the different displays. Our toddler loved the under 6 area; there were... More

Pros reasonably priced, good location. Variety of activities. Cons small, many exhibits not working, no staff present to ask questions. Spent 2 hrs there most interesting thing was the scarf flume and the construction play area. The costumes in the play area were ripped and worn

Kids and adults can play and have fun. Everything is interactive and touchable. Hours of entertainment. They have a very basic soda area but get a hand stamp and walk the river market. Lots of choices for snacks and meals and then return for more fun!

We stopped here to stretch our legs and let our six year old play on a recent road trip. It was a fun place to stop. My favorite part is the large scarf vacuum maze. My son's favorite part was the tornado simulation room. We had an enjoyable few hours of playtime!

If you have children and live in Little Rock or just visiting, this is the place to go. Even if your children hate science they will love the activities at this museum and you will love the facilities. Clean, modern and exciting. I do need to wen you that you and your children may get hooked on science when you... More

Took our Grandchildren to the museum and they, and we, absolutely loved it. There are to many interactive exhibits and we spent a whole afternoon there. None of us wanted to leave. Highly recommend this place for all ages.

Took my nephew for a few hours and we had a great time. There is an area for younger kids, but the whole place is a lot of fun, but really educational as well. The tornado simulation might be too much for littler ones (they advise you of this before you go in). The staff are very friendly and helpful.
