This is a fun place for all kids with hands on displays and activities. It is also a great place to start to introduce various elements of science to young kids; from earth science, to physics, or the human body. There are fun experiments for kids to participate in so that they learn as they play. Big kids like Dad... More

What a great place for kids and adults alike!! We all had a great time with ages 9 to 2. The only thing was... More

The kids liked it. I think they need to add more stuff. And it's pretty expensive for what you get. The staff could be more friendly as well.

The hands-on activities are always a hit with my children. We try to stop at any children's type of museum. They also enjoyed the Tesla show. It is an extra cost but doesn't last long.

We really enjoyed the museum! We had 8 in our group. 3 teens and a 5 year old as far as children. We all had a great time. The building was in the heart of downtown. A short walk from our hotel. It was quite clean and new. A lot of open space and everything was hands on. Bathrooms were... More

We went this past weekend with a 9 year old and a 3 1/2 year old. The 9 year old is an active boy who gets bored easily. He didn't get bored at all in this place! It has so many interactive things! Even the adults had a good time. We stayed 4 hours. The 3 year old had a... More

I had a ball with the students at this museum. This is great for kids of all ages. Even me. If you are in Little Rock and have kids this is a must.

This museum has so many hands on activities. We took our 5 year old daughter and spent 2 1/2 hours there. My husband and I both really enjoyed it also.
