This museum is interesting for all ages, but be warned adults, you need to be aware it is directed toward the kids and be in the mood to have a good time!

My 4 & 5 year old and I visited on a Friday. We basically had the place to ourselves and loved every minute. The interactive exhibits were appropriate for a wide range of ages. My youngsters particularly enjoyed the room for 6 and under. From lying on a bed of nails to practicing to be a weather man, this place... More

This is the best discovery-type museum I have ever seen. Everything is exceptionally modern and up-to-date and is a child's dream come true. I was most impressed. You will learn about the generation of electricity, gravity and light waves. There is also a marvelous gift shop and a section on movie making and animation which is one of the highlights... More

A very good, hands on, place to take small children. Great rainy day / hot day activity. Plenty of fun, examine it your self activities for children. This is particularly good to let children find it our for themselves in a safe environment. Lots of scientific exhibits.

This was a nice family outing. A lot of the exhibits were broken. I took a 10 year old and my 4 year old. The older child said it was boring but my 4 year old absolutely loved it!!!

We took our oldest daughter years ago and she had so much fun. Just to have something to do and it was $1 day-, I went with my adopted daughter who is 19. We had fun also.

I feel like this place has seen better days. While there were some interesting things about it overall it had a worn and tired feeling. After going to the Amazuem in Bentonville my kids weren't all that impressed with this one. The human body exhibit was by far the best thing at the museum. The tesla coil was a waste... More

Recently upgraded with new exhibits that really involve the kids in many areas of science. Great learning opportunity for the kids that are into science and it is also great for kids who just want to have fun with hands on activities. It is just a super place to take a kid for a few hours of fun and a... More

We were at a private event. My daughter and niece really enjoyed the latest installations of music creations, and brain mapping. The tornado room is always a big hit also. They had a few live animals on display. It was a good event.
