“Awesome little find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

What a great, unique find. Hard to describe what this place is but if you are in downtown Bellingham definitely check it out. It is a great hands-on experience for kids and adults. It sort of combines physics,science, music, art and logic. Each display has a binder that you can read if you want to know about the physics behind each invention, or you can just play with them and be awed. Apparently each invention was made by an employee. Some of them are works of art too. My daughters favourite was a handmade theremin. For only $2 it is the best deal in town, and i don't know how they maintain it for that price. I would have gladly donated more. It is not a big place and you could miss it if you weren't looking for it so keep an eye put for it.

“Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Great way to spend an hour or two. Its fun, intriguing, hands on, and mind boggling for all ages. Great price for the amount the activities probably costed. Must go do.

“Well done for kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

It's only a couple of bucks and there is enough to keep a mid-aged child entertained for two hours. I wouldn't recommend for younger than 5 because the attractions do require supervision and interaction - if you want to bring really young children, Skagit Valley children's museum is probably a better choice. However, if you only have one young one, you can still do enough here if you keep your eyes on him/her. As stated, it is a bunch of science based exhibits that you can experiment with.

“A Fun Experience for Any Age!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Until we were advised by a volunteer at the Bellingham Visitors Bureau we had no idea that we could walk from our condo to experience MindPort with our 6- year old grandson! What a find! Especially on a typically rainy winter day!
The engineering interactive feats are challenging & fascinating...the rotating art displays are engaging & beautiful...and all of this for a mere $2.00 admission fee. Don't miss it when you're in Bellingham.

“A great place to spend some quality time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I spent a couple of hours at Mindport with my 12 yr old daughter. We enjoyed every minute! It was a clean, quiet place to enjoy the exhibits and some quality time together!
