“Great for our kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Our kids have grown up with this museum. It moved to this location about a decade ago, before our youngest started talking. Now he is twelve and has won 3 state engineering championships. Its hard to say what influences a person, but Explora was certainly a part of it. Lots of interesting displays and interactive exhibits, IMAX and everything you expect from a science museum. With the natural history museum right next door, its all here.

“don't miss this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This is a great place for any curious person, whether young or not. There are exhibits for many interests, the central fountain is interactive, and it's a very welcoming place. I understand some evenings are reserved for adults only.
