I took my Grandsons to visit the Museum in June, 2016. We were looking for a place to visit on a hot summer day. The visit was wonderful!! Totally kid friendly, from building blocks to learning how to be a television weatherman. The boys had a grand time. We will visit again soon.

My husband and I just moved to the area and we were exploring the area when we came across this little gem. Lots of neat and educational, not to mention interactive exhibits for kids of all ages. Spent about 3-4 hours here. We can't wait to come back!

We have older children (16 and 13) they enjoyed being here. It is hard having family time that we all enjoy. This was one of those places. We especially loved the tornado room. It is also neat to go back and see what has changed.

Very nice setting for the family to experience. There are interesting areas not only for children but adult as well! my 12 y/o didn't even want to leave and my 2 was simply amazed by the stuff available for her to do! Location is in the heart of LR downtown and plenty of restaurants and hotels nearby within walking distance!... More

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.

Thank glenn g
