My grand children loved this place and it was a good way to spend a rainy day. It's a very large place with many, many things to do, see and interact with. Plan on spending most of the day there. Prices are quite expensive.

My kids and I had a Camp In (a sleepover) at LSC recently. It was a lot of fun! The Camp In is pretty crowded - but not as crowded as during the day. It is better to go with a group, as the museum...More

There’s always something to do with the kids especially with the membership. If you live nearby it makes total sense to join - we have probably taken our 1 year old 50 times and she always loves it. There are rotating shows such as doc...More

For kids this place is great, that's about it. It's like amusement park with kids running around screaming nonstop, but in a small space. Many exhibits were broken or otherwise not working. It was hard to enjoy, certainly not worth the money. I wouldn't come...More

Last time I went to LSC was over ten years ago. I have very fond memories. However, I feel the center has become very sloppy in layout. It feels more like an overpriced indoor playground for very young children rather than a science center.

Over 15 years since I have been to the center. I was totally amazed by the extensive improvements. The little ones will be thrilled to have so many interactive exhibits but as a senior so did I. Need hours to experience all that the center...More

We bought tickets via Groupon which saved money. I suggest starting on the top floor and work your way down since I felt it was the most fun for younger kids; more reading to do on the lower floors. Bring your own lunch.
