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.

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.

Something interesting at every step. Went with my son he had a wonderful time. I was also mesmerized by the way they make things that are everyday, like bacteria into something kids can see and understand.
