So much to do, learn, see and experience. From exhibits, to IMAX to planetarium - this place has it all.

“Great place to take the kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

It's an interactive science museum, even for me as an adult. The omnimax is awesome. Highly recommended .

“Not Worth It!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

There are several things wrong with this place. First you here that admission is free. Well that part is true. Now the parking is $10. To see any of the films is $5 each. Plus I would advise anyone that went there to eat first. We purchased a bottle of water--a bottle of water $3.86. That was a stupid move on our part. The food there is way over priced. By the time we left there it cost us $33.86. Never again. Not only that but the free exhibits were broken or dirty. Not worth the trip or money.

“Excellence for Family Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

There is nothing not to like about the Science Center. TREX robotic life size dino is a thrill for all ages! Educational, great gift shop, hands on for children. Be sure to do the walk across bridge that is a must!

“You will learn something”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

The Science Center is a great place to bring the kids. This place is a great place for kids to learn about science and some of the displays are interactive. Parents...You may just learn something to.
