Come here. This is a two-floor museum with static, active, and interactive displays and art forms, and an excellent museum store.

We visited the museum last summer and our 9 and 7 years old enjoyed the visit. There were many interactive exhibits and we spend a pleasant morning in the different rooms. So when we offered another visit the kids were really excited to come back....More

We spent an afternoon here, marveling at all the ingenious gadgets on display. Fascinating exhibit about the brain. Well worth price of admission, and the gift shop is interesting as well.

This is a little gem of a museum. The small Polaroid exhibit was nice. The Beautiful Brain exhibit was astounding. I would go back.

We visited and saw a wide range of interesting and innovative art at the edge of science. Not really hands on but still kept my boys intrigued.

This is a nice short stop for grown ups and teens. The exibits would be lost on little kids. We were there maybe an hour and saw everything. The gift shop is fun too.

I teach 9th grade physical science/earth science and geometry. This museum is geared for younger students. The hands on activities were fun but again 6th graders would be a more appropriate audience.
