“Great for Kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

Great place to take your kids or grandkids. A little out-of-the-way, but worth the trip.

“Some great exhibits here and fantastic telescopes.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

Our family had a great time here. Boys loved the large amount of hands on, interesting exhibits. Movies are interesting but not comparable to the SF Academy of Sciences. Also, the movie introduced when we went still said Pluto was a planet (it's was reclassified a dwarf planet many years ago), but the guy who introduced the film didn't mention that.
