Great for kids

went for our first visit with our 2 yr old this week. Most exhibits are geared toward 6 to 12 yr olds with some more involved

Unfortunately I have not been to another Science center in over 10 years, so I cannot compare this visit to other science centers. Price: The price is ok, we ended paying $10 more for a year pass, which nets you a free visit to any Science center nation wide (we have 6 within an hour from us). One thing to... More

This museum is on the smaller side but had a lot to keep a 4 yr old busy. I would recommend for the primary age group.

Place was very nicely done, staff friendly, and exhibits fun and interesting. The only thing that can be improved on is the price to get in. $15 per person is very expensive for the size venue this is (rather on the smaller side).

I went down to the center with my family with high expectations based on the information collected before our visit. My 8 year old nephew said the place was "boring" and I never thought I would have agreed. Although "boring" isn't how I will describe it. First, it's very small so I would recommend visiting with some foresight on how... More

We took my daughter and her friend here for her 12th birthday. The weather was cold and snowing so it was a wonderful indoor activity. It was a great experience for science enthusiasts of all ages. Even my husband and I had fun exploring the multitude of "hands-on" exhibits. It was hard to leave this place without both having fun... More

Our grandkids just loved the place with so much for them to do and it was also a learning experience for them. Give yourself about 4 hours to see most everything and watch the amazement in your children's faces.

Had a good time there with family. My niece who was with me has a membership. She takes her 2 yr d and 6 yr old there a lot. It was very informative.

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
