“Birthday Party at EdVenture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

My grandson really enjoyed a birthday party here. He and his friends explored everywhere, and had a super time. The people are nice, and the facility is well-constructed and fun.

“Worth a visit, learn a thing or two”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Clever educational museum. Neat giant "Ed," human body that kids can climb into and around, with fairly realistic depictions of internal organs, etc. Kids also loved the arctic zone with inner tube slide. Dental presentation was well done.

“Not a good experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

I have an 8 year old. This place was more for younger children. Kids were crazy running all over, parents didn't control them. Read the website and was really looking forward to snowville!! But what a let down. Overall it as a huge waste of money and time. Save your money and spend it at the Zoo!!
