The site itself is a very remarkable mix of activities. There are hands on activities like building and puzzle solving along with challenges like a bouldering wall and a enclosed climbing net. In addition, the lab hosts different events geared towards kids. While we were there, musicians from a local orchestra were on site with their instruments for kids to... More

We stopped in the Wonderlab with our two granddaughters, so they could experience the various activities they offer. They have many areas for the kids to roam and have hands-on experiences, but the one with balls, water and various things to do with water probably was the most entertaining. The also had mechanical devices that produced electricity to light up... More

My 5 year old daughter had such a great time spending the morning at Wonderlab. Lots of hands-on activities for all ages. Well worth the entrance fee. Would love to visit again.

So much to see here, it's an annual trip for our child's school. This year there's several new items and exhibits. An ant farm with cameras, hissing cockroaches, small climbing wall, a bee hive, etc. so much to do and plenty to keep kids engaged. There's a small area for under 5 as well. Great place with great staff, worth... More

We were so impressed with our trip here. Lots of different activities that kept all the kids in our group entertained for the 4+ hours we were there (age range was 4-12). It was a mine craft theme day & that was great. The price was very reasonable & I would recommend!

Even if you aren't a parent or child, there is plenty to see and do here. Water play for small children, the bubble room, aquarium and reptiles, beehive, and much more. Theme exhibits and special programs to keep it fresh. The gift shop is a great place for finding unique presents.

This is a great place for all ages of kids, and adults will enjoy it too. I took my 3-year-old granddaughter, and another day, my 13-year-old grandson. They both loved it! It's worth checking out if you have kids!

If you are staying at Hyatt Place, this is literally behind the location in walking distance. Overall, very impressed with the atmosphere of the location and the helpfullness offered by the staffers. The fact you can buy entry in the morning, go and eat lunch and come back makes this a superb value, especially on a hot summer day.

There is constantly something new happening here. This is an amazing place for children to play and learn at the same time. Like many children's museums, this is an interactive facility, but the greatest part is, there are things to keep the parents entertained as well. For all ages, and all learning abilities! You can also enjoy the beautiful garden... More
