My daughter loved all of the exhibits and demonstrations. The IMAX is the best one I've ever been to.

My 12 yr old son loved it. The Imax theatre is really and has new movies often. The tornado movie was neat. It made you feel you were part of the show. The science exhibits were neat too.

A good place for kids, lots of interactive science, health and biology activities. My grandsons are 9 and 6 and we had a good time. My 27 year old son in law probably enjoyed it the most. There was a birthday party going on and I would use the area if I lived in town. All around, a good time.

Sci Port is so much fun. I enjoy going just as much as my kids do. There are plenty of activities, a cafe, IMAX theater, etc. We've had birthday parties there & my child got to make their own ice cream. Plus it sits right next to scenic Red River. It's a great place.

There are just not many things to do in Shreveport with children, so this is the perfect place to go. We've been a few times but it is always interesting and I think they do an excellent job of maintaining their exhibits. Almost everything was clean and in working order (a huge contrast to the children's museums of south louisiana).... More

I live here in Shreveport and I still don't get tired of Sci-port. Kids and adults alike can always find interesting and fun things to do. Great fun. Also a very good rainy day activity.

I haven't been here for several years, but decided to go see an Imax film on Lemurs of Madagascar. I was wondering if it might be a 4D experience because upon entering the theatre, it smelled like a monkey house at the zoo. The seats have seen better days. The film itself seemed dim and a little blurry. Other films... More

The Sci-Port has exhibits you simply do not see everyday---from a special section on the planets of our solar system (I was surprised to learn that Saturn has 46 known moons) to interesting displays about magnetism and pendulums. You can also learn about aerodynamics, electricity and satellites and how they photograph the earth. There are many hands-on exhibits that will... More

It has been several years since we visited Sci Port and my oldest - 12 - was the only one who remembered being there. The 10 and 7 year olds also loved it. It was educational and fun. I even had a good job. We didn't stay to see the movie but loved everything else.... Except the lady in the... More
