Kinetic art, hands on activities, audible experiments, optical illusions - very neat place and well worth the small entrance fee.

This was definitely one of the neatest "museums" that I have been to!! Lots of hands-on things to try and lots of look at. Some of the most unique items/displays!

Recently, I have avoided the place because of a middle aged guy that works there. I'm sure he means well, but his approach to people walking thru the door make the place unwelcoming. Atleast if you have a small child. There is another review about him handling a guest that he believed didn't pay, sounds like the same guy. I... More

This is a gem of a place if you have kids. It is a museum but the can touch and play with most things in there while learning at the same time. The place is very cheap to enter also, only $2 to enter into the museum. It was the best money spent on the trip and the kids played... More

Awesome indoor activity! Very cool interactive exhibits to play with and make you think! Fun for young children and parents and probably everything in between...

This is a place to spend a half hour to an hour. Well worth the $2 entrance fee. Beautiful hand made wood curiosities and gizmos that are hands-on explorations of some science, music or mechanical concept. There are binders with more detailed info on the concepts introduced by the displays, if someone's curiosity would make them want to read more... More

This is a must see when you go to Bellingham. My kids (8 and 10) spent 2 hours exploring and trying their exhibits. The place is a little small but you will be amazed you by the different things on display. Fee is only $2 each. Plenty of street parking- free on weekends!
