The museum has interactive exhibits that we all enjoyed - from the 2 year old to the adults. It was an enjoyable addition to our Hot Springs trip

We went to the museum over spring break. It is completely interactive for kids and is a place where a kid can be a kid! The tesla theatre wasn't really worth the money, but the simulation was. It is a very long walk to the front door if you are handicapped. They should have a drop off at the employee... More

We went with my sister, BIL, niece & great niece. We had a 17 year old and a 3 year old with us and both had lots of fun. So many hands on things for everyone to do. It was so interesting to do science, nano science, Tesla coil, Arkansas caves, earthworm items. It is a wonderful place to take... More

There's a lot to do here. Many exhibits, although there were many pictures of new exhibits coming next year that seemed very interesting. It's hard to do it all during spring break since there's a pretty full crowd.

My teenager enjoys science museums but the last couple we had visited seemed to have more activities for younger kids. This one was very hands on and age appropriate for a teenager. The rates were cheaper than I expected, so maybe there was a special Monday rate. The cave was fun for both my husband and son.

One of the best children's museum I've seen. Smaller than the Ft Worth & Houston museums but the quality of exhibits are equal and in some cases, surpass.

We were very pleasantly surprised! This was one of the most stimulating science museums we have ever visited. Even though many displays are on the lower tech side, they are excellent and we all - kids and adults - had hours of fun playing with them. We created electric circuits, built towers, made animated movies, "trapped" shadows, built tracks for... More
