We have visited a few times now and the History section is really interesting. We will need to return to see more of this. We have found their parking lot at the side of the MOSH which is good. The wildlife section, Energy and human body sections were well done. The Darwin exhibition is great. We also visited the planetarium... More

I've been to many science museums across the country and this one is, without a doubt, one of the most boring ones I've ever been to. Just not much of anything happening, no real learning, nothing. We actually went when they had the dinosaur attraction there. They had some pretty cool animontronic dinosaurs but not much in the way of... More

We visited here to scout this place as an attraction for members of our Navy ship reunion group, coming here in September. Our hotel is in walking distance, so it seemed like a natural. Unfortunately, there is very little here for grownups. Mostly it seems oriented to kids, and those we saw here seemed to be having a lot of... More

Took kids age 7 and below here and it was worth the trip. The place kept them amused for almost 2 hours , which for me is a success. They enjoyed the planeturium which is included with admission and liked some of the interactive exhibits. Without kids, this wouldnt be my first choice as its not very big and probably... More

This was a great place for the whole family. Very interactive and the kids get to experience and learn about the body, energy, and other great things. Very affordable day trip!

Worth the visit on a Friday when it was five dollars per person ages three and up. Not worth much more than that. Many of the interactive buttons were broken and not working. The planetarium show the cosmic music in the afternoon was enjoyable. In the play area for young children was verysmall and children got bored quickly. Children's ages... More
