A sweet museum if you have little guys. A great place to get out of the heat if you have kiddos that are under 10 years old.

I visited with my 10 year old daughter and 19 year old son and we all had fun. We especially enjoyed the bubble room, pulling our own weight and wheel chair racing. The bicycle that converts energy to power a fan, lights, radio and train was also a favorite. When we first got there, we started flying paper helicopters on... More

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.

My kids loved the bubble room. Spent lots of time playing with bubbles, explores new bubbles. It was low season under a 104 weather and it was empty. Lots of exploring. 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!
