Great for kids and adults alike. Very educational, although since being to some bigger city science discovery centers this one seems small and dated.

Me and my family enjoyed this place a lot. There is a lot of fun things to do and see that you can spend the whole day without noticing.

I loved that this place was not only fun for the kids, but educational as well. They have a room for younger children, which my toddler LOVED! Would recommend for all ages.

Give it a try if you have children. This is a nice place that kept the kids busy for few hours with a lot of hands on experiments.

Really enjoyed taking our two grandsons-ages 8 & 6- and granddaughter-age 3. Made it just in time for Wiggle Worms. Unfortunately the subject when we walked in involved balloons and then thunder so my "scared of loud sounds" granddaughter didn't want to stay in there. I think it was probably very good though. Took the 3 and 6 year olds... More

I would give this place 5 stars otherwise. We took our 3 kids here and had a blast until several buses of kids pulled up from a summer camp. It was chaotic, no chaperones and the camp kids were rude and pushing our kids out of the way. I'm sure the museum made a tidy profit that day but we'll... More

In town for a weekend visit with my husband and sister. All of us adults. We were down by the waterfront at the Saturday market and we stumbled upon this museum. We had a fantastic time interacting and learning at this museum. There really is something for everyone. It's very much worth the visit. We particularly all enjoyed the origami... More

My husband and I took our three kids (5,9,11) here with my grandmother and we all had a blast. It was funny because everyone of us had our favorite exhibits but we all enjoyed the handkerchief machine the best. Nice memories that will last forever.

With grandchildren aged 8 and 11, the museum was wonderful. Lots of thought provoking hands on exhibits. We particularly enjoyed a device that allowed you the compete by moving a ball with brain waves. It also had a tornado exhibit where you experienced what the big tornado of 1999 was like.

I took my 12 year old mentee here and she had a wonderful time! We recorded a news broadcast, went through this super fun speed exhibit, learned about the body and much more. She got to climb on stuff, learn about tornadoes and there's this machine that lets you lay on a bed of nails that makes for a great... More
