Great indoor fun
Jun 2019
You will love spending time exploring with your young children here. They are always changing out the displays but the favorites stay the same. Make sure to explore the hallway for the beautiful art work on the walls. It will be a welcome break from the heat after you visit the Sugar Sand Park.

Small, Interesting, and Interactive Children's Museum in a Park
Jul 2019 • Family
Let the children play with the many experiments easily accessible to them, and have fun while learning. Outside there is great playground and even a real merry-go-round or carousel.

Science and more
Jul 2019 • Family
Wonderful spot for exploring indoors and outdoors. I took my 5 year old on a rainy morning. He enjoyed playing with the magna tiles and multiple science stations. When the rain cleared out, we walked through the butterfly garden and nature trail. There are picnic pavilions available. After the stations, my son enjoyed the $1 carousel ride and free playground. The playground was large, clean, and included a splash area. An ice cream truck was available in the parking lot. Overall, there is plenty to do here for admission based on donation. Free parking and free admission. Friendly and helpful staff are available throughout the Science center.

Small Kids Museum
May 2019 • Family
I thought this museum was going to be bigger. The exhibits they had were nice but I had expected it to be bigger based on the size of the building. I guess most of the building is used for classes or shows. The exhibit area is one room with maybe 10-12 stations. The park, splash park, carousel that are in the same area were a nice addition. We were there maybe 3 hours and a large majority of it was spent at the park, maybe an hour in the museum area. All the employees were very friendly.

Free quality fun
Jul 2018 • Family
We visit this science center 1-2 times a year. My son has always loved coming here. I like how they move the exhibits around and add things every few months.
They have indoor exhibits and outdoor scavenger hunts and gardens. My
6 year old’s Favorite exhibit is the rocket launch. My favorite exhibit is there Thermion. Each exhibit is fully explained by a placard.

TIP:If you pull into the parking lot at the first drive way snd park at that end of the building, you cannot see the Carousel or the playground. Both are very fun, but sometimes you just want to do the science stuff.
