This is the perfect place to take your children on a hot summers day. We bought an annual family pass after our first visit and have been probably 10 times this year. Lots of activities for children (and adults).

Young or old, this is the place to go! My wife and I went by ourselves for my birthday and it was so much fun! There's always something different, but it's always informative! You will not be disappointed!

We found their exhibit on the human body very interesting. There were large school groups there, and the kids seemed to be having so much fun. It's a nice science museum and a plus for kids.

My daughter liked-the exhibits and the interactive stations and games. Most of the games worked. The setup was organized and easy for a young person to engage independently. The location was ideal and near our hotel and other attractions. IMAX entrance was unclear...signage was misplaced.
