I went with my boyfriend ( age 19) to the Leonardo Museum. We didn't pay extra for the Mummy part of the museum.
The website is a tad over exaggeration about the exhibits.
Pixel Playland turned out to be nothing but simple blocks to stack and a pegboard with squares to make designs out of.
The Dynamic Performance of Nature was nothing but a display on a wall where colors changed. It was neat once we asked a worker to explain to us how it worked etc.
The Hylozoic Veil hung from the ceiling and wasn't that exciting. My electronic engineer boyfriend liked it because of the electronic microchips that you could see.
We didn't spend much time at the 'I.D.: What makes you, you?" because we were short on time. It looked interesting though.
The "Lab @ Leo" was nothing but a craft center with paper and glue.
I'm not sure where the "Made in Utah: A Showcase of Innovation" was, I'm sure we saw everything at the museum but this section probably wasn't clearly labeled.
Nature's Toolbox was just an art exhibit.
Out on a Limb had some interesting displays however a floor attendant explaining different things and how to do the activites would have been helpful. It was more of a 'pass thru, glance thru' thing.
Render was pretty neat! We used these sets to create a mini movie.
There was also a green screen that was neat.
We payed 8 per person w a student discount. I think it was pretty run of the mill and average for a children's type museum.
All ages could definitively find this fun, but for college students I suggest coming on a day when most kids are in school. I felt bad wanting a turn with different things.
We spent 2 hours at the exhibit and tried almost everything. I would suggest 3 hours if you want to hit it all. More then 3 if you are going to see the mummies.
Any electronic engineer types would love this museum!
I have photos as well..if anyones curious let me know:) I'd be happy to share our adventures.
