“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Took two kids to explore and learn..they loved it..very educational and fun. Located in the downtown area near the Battlehouse Hotel and Riverview which is within walking distance. It is easy to get in and out of. Would recommend.

“Had a fun family day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

This museum was great. The IMax was awesome too. Price isn't too bad. Loved the health exhibit. Only wish they had more stuff for toddlers or smaller children. They have a toddler play area, which is pretty cool. Had a built in boardwalk complete with fish market and tugboat., but not enough interactive activities. My daughter got bored. Overall, it's a great place to visit, just needs some minor tweeks.

My children enjoy going to The Exploreum. The hands on exhibits are great for curious minds. I even learn something everytime we go! Very clean and family friendly.
