This is a great place to take family and have fun. Can spend a complete day. The staff has done an amazing job in getting your attention on exhibits. The theming is out of this world

We went here for something to do that would interest us both. We parked along the street and paid the meter but I think there are some lots/garages nearby. There is a lot to do here. There are experiments and almost everything is hands on. If you have children they will learn while playing. There are things to do for all ages. There is even an area where you can look at animals. (no big animals reptiles, amphibians, and insects) This place is also close to other things if you want to have a fun day out in Little Rock.

We went for the first time since re-opening after Corona shut down and were VERY impressed. They had made LOTS of cleaning upgrades for safety. They have spaced stations apart and have installed hospital-grade air filters, and UV lights in all air ducts to destroy airborne viruses. The staff was super nice like always. THey had taped off areas to look at Science demonstration that were properly spaced. My kids loved the lower capacity. This is a very fun family activity

Took my four-year-old grandson here last week. After using up our two-hour public library parking time, we drove to the midtown Pizza Cafe for lunch, then back downtown for another two hours of fun. His favorite parts were the Pet Clinic and the Bed of Nails, which we kept coming back to. Also, the karaoke room (Old MacDonald) and a soft playground surrounded with netting to bounce around on. A few educational parts captured his interest, too--a dinosaur exhibit and anatomy display. A few of the science gizmos weren't working, and the place shows minor wear and tear, which is to be expected. However, it was an engaging place to spend the day. As an added bonus, the Stephens Nature Center is nearby with free admission. Be aware that parking is a challenge since the River Market District is one long congested street, President Clinton Avenue, with no side streets to park on. However, there is indefinite free parking a few blocks away at the Clinton Library on the east side of the district. Also, if you have a public library card, you can park in their lot for two hours without having to pay.

The children loved it. Lots of variety in the exhibits. Lots of exhibits. Very easily spent over two hours. The only minor frustration was that a few of the exhibits didn’t work.

A fun place to spend a rainy Saturday morning with the grandkids. Lots of creative learning. Be sure to see the Tesla coil demonstration!

I really had fun and my 4 year old had a blast! Loved the live demos, especially the Tesla machine. Limited room so be quick when they announce. The live animal demos were cool too. Spent about 2 hours and could have spent more but we were hungry and they only have vending machines, but the area is filled with restaurants.

Visited this museum with my 19 and 10 year old kids! The museum is ranked as the 6th best science museum in the US by MENSA. Side note-Can you believe that my kids were so engaged that they didn’t argue at all! The exhibits and activities are beyond awesome. It’s also a short walk from the Clinton Library and many eateries! Discounted rates for educators, just provide your school e-mail! Do yourself a favor and go have some fun. This place allows a kid to be a kid!

Just watched an amazingly awesome Tesla show. The whole museum is fun, but if you get a chance to go to the Tesla show definitely do!

Interesting and fun place, we spend four hours here with ease. Only downside was they don’t have a lunch place but you can go in and out as you please and there are great places for food on the near vicinity.
