A bit spendy but lots and lots to do for kids. Even brings out the kids in adults. Very informative and will take up a solid half of your day. Special exhibits are extra.

There was alot to do and the kids enjoyed the hands on! So many different things to do, some for all ages of kids. Spread out nicely so no one gets run over and the stations were not too crowded. Pricing is good. My grand kids appreciated the different live animals on display. Some were things I had never seen... More

Took the family there for a friends birthday party. We had a private science show that was awesome. This place is a real treasure for Little Rock.

I go here every time I am in Little Rock and it never disappoints. The changing exhibits are always interesting and the regular ones are always fun to go back to.

We took our grandchildren there and they had a blast. Much to do and many things to grasp and hold their attention. We were pleasantly surprised at the many, many attractions.
