Not a good experience here for the adults. The kids loved it but they were not as worried about the condition of the place. I wouldn't go back or recommend it to anyone

Science City has something for everyone of all ages. Our family outing ranged in age from 9-61 years old and we all had such a wonderful time! We’ll definitely go back! A great place for Kids to explore and learn!

We took our two grandchildren (ages 11 and 9) last week and ran out of time to fully explore the entire attraction. It was a time of fun and learning, the exhibits are cleverly designed to teach while children have fun.
