We were given tickets to the Critter Fest from our Daughter-in-law, Brittany. My husband, our Daughter, our 3 year old Grandson and I got to experience the wonder of the Critter Fest at the Science Spectrum. We were very impressed with the Lion and Tiger show. We loved looking at the exotic animals outside the Science Spectrum. Our Grandson especially... More

Visited today with my wife, adult daughter and two Grandsons, 7& 2. The facility is a great concept , but is real need of updating and some maintenance! Many of the exhibits did not function properly or at all. Staff was of very little help and did not seem to be concerned that things did not work. The designated area... More

We've love going since my kids were 2yrs old. For the little ones there is an under 5 yr old play area. It's so nice to have a place that little ones can safely explore and play. In this area there is only one exit/entrance and you can see the whole area from that spot. What I liked to do... More

Great for family time. There are lots of hands on science discovery opportunities which adults will enjoy as well. Of course you'll want to see the IMAX movie. But that option isn't a requirement.

This is the first in a long time that my kids ages 13, 7, and 3 were equally entertained and enjoyed themselves. Lots to do, a variety of different fields of science to explore. We made a whole day of it. They loved the Omni Theater. I like the fact you can leave and come back during the day. The... More

Dufferent ages and interests are catered to, here. We didn't have time for the IMAX but enjoyed this hands on experience.

Science and learning made fun..say whaaaatt? This is one of the best places to bring your kids (or kids at heart) for a day of fun and learning. Lots to see, do and remember. Three levels of hands on learning. They also have fun events through the year (Butterflies, for example) and the OMNIMAX theater is always interesting.

This was an interesting museum if you're interested in science. I am a science teacher and was super excited, but when we got there there were some things that didn't work right and were very dated. Most things haven't changed since the 90's. I know they rely on donations so I understand not having funding. It was a nice museum,... More
