The kids will love it and so shall Mom and Dad. A lot of hands on experiments and some awesome teaching sessions. It compares to what you find at Science World Vancouver but with a more personal touch.

The displays are a bit out dated and the place isn't big, but for the price it is more than fair. My grand kids always enjoy going and trying all the hands on displays. There isn't a lot of educational type things to do with...More
