Geared mostly towards kids, this was still enjoyable for our 3 adult group. Clever experiments, science experiment demonstrations, and a nice (tiny) observatory. We had a nice couple hours here - and especially enjoyed the park-like grounds which were peaceful and relaxing in a quiet San Pedro neighborhood.

There are many things for your kids to do here, also, the movie they play (varies) is impressive! As an adult I enjoy visiting here, I'm sure my kid loves it!. During summer, be sure to stay well hydrated as it gets hot !! Don't forget sunscreen for the little ones!
