We brought our grandkids there. They were memorized. We all had a great time. They had various scientific rooms to tour with many hands on activities. We will be back.

That would be the higher end of age groups. Our grandson is a shy 14 year old and he enjoyed it as much as his brother and sisters (5, 10 and 3). The group of friends effect would probably help them to enjoy it as well.
