My 7 year old daughter loved it and cannot wait to go back. Admission is reasonable. We didn't have a whole lot of time, but the time we did spend she loved. Some of the electricity exhibits were a little too advanced for her. The human body section was amazing! A few of the exhibits you could tell needed some... More

We were here for about 3 hours with a 15, 13, and 10 year old. There was plenty for them each to do during that time. We got in for $1 each - not sure if that is every Sunday, or just because of July 4th weekend. It was a great value for our money!

Neat place to take the kids. Clean and well maintained. Attendants were very helpful. Gift shop was as overpriced as they all are. Overall a fun time. We spent about 3 hours there.

We had an afternoon in LR and opted for this museum. I have 4 kids ranging in ages from 21 months to 6 years. My 2 oldest LOVED this museum. There was a lot of variety and it allowed them hands on experience to learn about different areas of science. There was a newer room for ages 5 and under.... More

Many of the displays are interactive and it's especially interesting for children. I have been several times for different events. My favorite was when they had the dinosaurs!

We have been annual pass holders for years. My kids have enjoyed going here since they were very young (They are now 9 and 15). Mind you my 15 year old is a little indifferent now to the idea of going, but he always finds something fun to do. There is about 3-4 hours of stuff to do, with a... More

Whether you are young or old this place is so much fun for all ages!! So much to do and see. They change it up all the time so it seems like its different each time you go but in a good way.

One thing we enjoyed was in the human body room, where they had a walkway that would record your steps and movements. It wasn't real busy, so we tried different speeds and movements. It was fun. There are lots of exhibits and I would have stayed even longer, but some of us were ready for lunch. We paid a little... More
