My 3-year old had a blast. Even though she could not understand some of the exhibits(for example, the accelerator/break reaction time) but she still had fun experiencing each of the exhibits. It was fairly clean for a children facility. We could step out to grab...More

This place is amazing for children. We went during the summer, and they had a schedule of activities including Yoga, storytelling, and crafts. The kids loved it, and so did we.

What fantastic interactive, creative, and well planned museum! Starting with the bubble table downstairs to the restaurant and career field exploration, this place has something for everyone. At $10.00/head for hours of learning and fun, this should be on everyone's to do list!

If you show up and a field trip is there, there's no mediation, you'll get shoved off to the side in favor of the group that paid more money
