We visited on a Friday and the crowds were very low. We had no issues waiting to explore the many exhibits. We enjoyed all of the exhibits and the outdoor exhibits were especially fun and interactive.

The edifice is over-whelming in its beauty and design. It is a mockery of the horrible airport at Kansas City. How shameful that there is not more Amtrak trains serving KCTY.

This place was not on our radar when we came to visit but we saw it advertised several places. We decided to check it out for a few hours to burn off some toddler energy before a long car ride home. So glad we did!...More

I took a 5th grade class to Science City for a field trip. Check-in was very easy and the staff was extremely friendly. They have many activities that interest children from early childhood through junior high.
