A super fun hands-on discovery place: from bubble making with large hoops to wooden construction blocks that fit without the use of nails. From lego-making cars to race to discover balls rolling on curved tracks, loops or combinations. There was so much to explore and...More

First, the young person working the entry booth didn't seem knowledgeable or helpful. Second, when you walk in, it's a little confusing and not well laid out. There are wide open spaces (perhaps for school groups) and no direction where to go first. It's not...More

This place is run down and has no oversight what so ever. Exhibits are in poor shape and most are quite dirty. Some of the exhibits are even roped off or non-functional. Kids running around unattended in the giant bubble exhibit. This resulted in popped...More

We decided to go check out the Sci-tech Discovery and found it to be for very young children. If you have very young children they will find this place entertaining and older kids not so much.

My kids ages 7, 9 and 12 enjoyed themselves playing with all the interactive exhibits for about an hour and a half. There's lots of different stations with different things to do. It kind of is two different rooms and it was fairly easy to...More

The perfect day for our 5 year old grandson (probably good for up to 8 years). Lots of hands on attractions all with an educational bias. We arrived at 11.00 and left at 16.45. The only downside is that there is no coffee shop/cafe so...More

This discovery center was an expensive and disappointing outing. The kids thought it was fun, but they also think fast food restaurant play areas are fun! From an adult prospective, though, I felt it was a little run down, and not well cared for. The...More

My kids always loved this place. We have visited dozens of times over the years and also done many of the summer camps. The exhibits are regularly updated so it always feels fresh and interesting. I only rate it a three because they close on...More

We took our 6 year old here. Coming from a much larger city I was expecting more. It is a very small science center with few exhibits. While my little one enjoyed it I would not invest in a membership. Not enough there to do...More
