Sci-Port is an excellent place to spend time with the children in an hands on educational environment. The little scientist will bud with the varying experiments available and the inviting and hands on events. Parents will appreciate the inside food court to thirst their quench or grab a light meal. The I-Max theater shows limited movies, but is enhances the... More

Went to Sci-Port today with 19 mo.old baby & 8yr old kid. The Planetarium was awesome. This shouldn't be missed. Show is spectacular, using round screen that resembles a sun outside, sound system is excellent nothing to complain. The ambience is very relaxing as if your star gazing. The kids have a series of hands-on activities which is good for... More

As locals, we have been to the SciPort quite often. It is sometimes OK, but for the most part, it is not worth the money. Half of the attractions are usually not working and overall, just not a lot to do for the amount of money you pay.

Unfortunately the area for younger children was still being renovated and a few activities not working. Still seemed to delight children and we had no trouble filling four hours.

Lots of hands on discovery here. The IMAX theater is a unique experience. It's kind of chaotic because all of the kids are running from exhibit to exhibit in their excitement. It was hard to keep mine in check amid all of it to be honest but we really enjoyed it and look forward to going back.

We took our 10 years old grandson to SciPort on our way toBaton Rouge. They had activities for a wide range of ages. One of the best things to me was the video of "Becky's trip" on the Red River. We also attended a very interactive astronomy presentation. Our grandson was interested in the robotics program but it was for... More
