All the exhibits seemed incomplete, facility has a dreary feel to it particularly for something heard towards children. I'll say that the staff was attentive to the children but not enthused. Our group was admitted for free because my daughter had a pass.. I felt for the people that were charged the full price of $13 per person.. even $13... More

Great place to take the kids with such a wide range of activities to keep the youngest to the oldest kid (or kid at heart) entertained and learning! We ended up with a season pass and has been great to go several times throughout the year. Love the season pass has an "extended family" option allowing for us to take... More

Great place for kids to learn about various science issues, mechanical engineering issues, and natural science. Current "Grossology" exhibit about bodily functions not for the light hearted! This would get 5 stars but some on the exhibits were not working.

I brought my nephew to the Da Vinci Center hoping for some really fun and engaging activities. I would have liked to see more unique programming and displays. We did not stay for very long, as we got through everything fairly quickly.

This was a stop on the way home while on vacation and we're glad we made it. There were lots of hands on exhibits for the kids.

Sure to amuse and keep kids of many ages engaged. Several permanent exhibits, and enough rotating exhibits to make a membership worthwhile.

Went here on saturday morning when it was unbearably hot to be in air conditioning. First time here and it was nice place. Not huge but had lots of various things for my kids to look at and learn about. My kids are 4-6 years old and seemed interested in the activities. We were here for probably 2-3 hrs. Ended... More

I went there with my son on a field trip, it was fun for all ages. The staff was awesome and organized our visit very well. My only complaint is that people (parents) should wipe the lunch tables down when they are done using them.

Great educational center for various ages. I wish it was not so expensive for the adults attending with the children. Keep up the great work on educating our young. Thank you

My family has been members of the DaVinchi center since it opened, my children were in the explorer and the inventors programs. The exhibits are always changing, and interesting. The people are fun to interact with.
