“Great for kids and parents!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

The exhibits for kids are plentiful and educational. My kids had lots of fun and the show at the planetarium is good to see, nice way to relax. Membership is a great value if you live in the tristate area.

“Great fun for the kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

I love when kids can have fun and learn without realizing they are learning. The educational exhibits are smart and don't talk down to the kids. The staff are well-trained and knowledgeable about the exhibits. We particularly enjoy the Exploratory area which changes exhibits regularly. There seems to be an themed event at least once a month that provides opportunities for craft workshops.
