This place is so special. It is a lovely place to spend a few hours for adults and kids a like, and doesn't put boxes around what is art and science, and encourages interactivity.

My partner and I came here the first time almost by accident. Now we bring any families that visit. It is such a fun hands on place.

Lots of cool puzzles/contraptions/artistic sculptures that encourage you to do hands-on exploring. My two teenagers were fascinated and we spent an hour and a half absorbed in this intimate and quirky museum.

I've taken my son to Mindport throughout the years. There are lots of hands-on & push-button exhibits, like what you'd find at a museum of science & industry, but on a smaller, cozier scale. (One of my son's favorites is the ping-pong air tubes.) As...More
