We have taken children many times. It is good for all ages. Older people can enjoy it without getting overly tired because it doesn't cover as much space as large zoos.

The Greensboro Science Center is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon. Exhibits are good for both children and adults. Pretty typical of other science centers, but the aquarium is nice.

I have a 3 year old and a 6 year old. The three year old ask to go every day. I have a year round membership so it's a great place to go to beat the summer heat. The animals always look healthy and energetic.

Had a great afternoon exploring all the new exhibits! All the animals were out and curious. Lots of staff to tell you about the animals. The staff were great, out doing enrichment exercises for the animals to bring them out! Wonderful time!
