Fun family trip

Sci-Port was fun. I wished we had just on more hour. I suggest doing one of the mystery adventures. Game port was also fun.

An experience that is brand new every time you enter!
Jul 2021
I've gone to this museum since I first went on field trips from towns away and also i went to their summer camps. I knew what it looked like back then and I still have pictures, I heard it closed down a while back and got renovations, decided to bring my kids now, it looks completely refreshing and I'm glad it has changed. I sincerely thank whoever is keeping this place a float and coming up with new designs, field trips, and summer camps.

Sci-Port - Learning and fun for all ages
Jul 2021 • Family
We took our 20 month old grand daughter here and she had an absolute blast. There are so many activities for young ones to engage themselves. They have a section dedicated to children eight years old and younger. The theme of the section is learning by playing. Even our toddler was able to engage the exhibits and have a blast doing so. Now, this place is not just for children. I felt like a kid too. There are too many learning opportunities to mention, but no one should be bored. They also have an I-Max theater.

Very Nice

So worth the time and expense it takes to visit here. When my daughter was younger, we had a membership here and used it frequently! This is an impressive museum for a city the size of Shreveport. Definitely worth the visit.

My children and I have visited here many times and we love it just the same each visit. It is fun and entertaining. I would suggest this place to anyone of all ages. I am just as entertained as the kids, if not more.

My family enjoyed the IMAX and museum. I wish we would have had been able to explore the parts that was close due to COVID-19

Great place for the kids and adults!

Great place for the family. Kids will love it and so will the parents. Take in a IMAX movie in the domed theatre and don't miss the Gallery of Intrigue. For the little ones go up stairs to a huge play area just for little kids.

Fairly good museum for the price. The kids enjoyed it. Their favorite part was the electricity show with Alex.

Wonderful for families with children
Feb 2020 • Couples
This center is geared towards younger families. It has a lot of exhibits that children can learn from, a snack bar area, an IMAX theater, lots of free parking. It was no too busy the day we went there, so we did get to see almost all of it in a little less than 3 hours, and found it very interesting. We saw one IMAX show, about how scientists are helping to stave off Panda extinction and it was terrific too

Great Place for Kids
Dec 2019
So we have a membership with another museum so we got in for free. We had to pay $5 for the snow section which was sort of ok. It's pretty basic but the kids had fun. The best part is upstairs with the kids play section. The attendant was very kind and helpful and the kids were in heaven. This section was VERY well done and my kids could have easily spent a couple of hours there. The other section about space I found was super boring but the kids enjoyed the paper airplane thing. Looks like there's a new section being built which my kids were excited to see.
