My kiddos had a great time. There were things for all ages. My daughter loved the science sections while my son loved the water. Overall it was great. I will say we encountered a couple things were the buttons didn't work. Or something had obviously been loved so much it didn't work perfectly anymore. It wasn't super crowded the day... More

Want to wear your little ones out? This is a great place to do that! Lots to see, hands-on exploring, talks, and just a blast for kids! Exhibits change constantly and your kids are guaranteed to have a great time as you sneak photos of their fun time! SUCH a kid friendly place that you just can't beat!
