“Fun for kids and adults!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012 via mobile

This place is great! I think its kind of expensive, especially since you have to pay extra to watch a movie in the planetarium. If you can get the family membership its def a great deal! You can use it to go to other family museums in the USA. My husband and I even enjoy learning and playing with things here.

“Interesting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

There are many fun learning stations. The planetarium is nice & fun! Summer 2012 they have a Robots & Us exhibit, which the kids enjoyed. It's worth spending a good few hours there!

“Great for Kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

For children, there is a lot to do and see at the Discovery Center. The admission is nominal. There is a park just beside the parking lot, so you can do a picnic and make a day of it.

“Not worth $10”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Lubbock has a science spectrum and an omnimax and it's so much better and you get more for your money. This place was run down and nothing really worked, most of the things were broken and there really wasn't a whole lot to do or see. We were disappointed.
