Super fun science museum with classic exhibits and rotating ones too. Bubble room is a blast for toddlers to adolescents. Lots of educational programs in the theater. Toddler room for safe play for young ones is awesome if there happen to be a bunch of teenagers there.

There is so much to do and explore for kids of all ages. Many hands on activities and sometimes local artisans have displays to enjoy. They have a room that you can use for parties too!

Lots of fun and educational. The adults did lots of the science with each other as well as with the little one. Over an hour and could stay longer.

If you're visiting Southern Oregon with your children, ScienceWorks is a must-see destination. It's really interesting and educational, no matter how old you are. Males and Females, children and adults will find the time they spend there well worth it. And it's free! It doesn't get any better than ScienceWorks! If your children don't get excited by OSF plays, this... More

We had a chance to pay in each station. My kids are asking to go back. Fun place for kids and the price is right for a family of... More

It's a little expensive, but my 3 year old had a great time. The place is huge inside with so much to explore. It is truly hands on. The bubble room was a highlight and visited about three times, but there was so much, and stuff hidden. Make sure to look around!

ScienceWorks Ashland, is not the SF Exploritorium, but it is adorable. Small and easy to get to, it won't overwhelm kids (or parents) into tears the way some of the bigger science kid's museums can. All the exhibits can be easily explored in a few hours. They have great summer camps for the locals and a good place for a... More

I visited as a child, almost a decade ago. Though I do remember it being a very fun experience where I learned a lot. It was a field trip and a highlight of my school year for sure.

Visted with reciprocal membership at local museum, but worth a stop on its own. Kids, age 3 & 5, had a great time but older children seemed to be enjoying too.
