Awesome, awesome, awesome!
So interesting, did not want to leave, you have got to see it for yourself!

Good for everyone esp. adults and teens! Might be a bit scary for very young kids but it is so so interesting!
LOVED IT!

“Decent time waster”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

You'll spend probably an hour or two exploring some very interesting exhibits. It's decent for the price and a good chance to see some interesting, out of this world exhibits.

“Dissappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2012

Not a great experience unfortunately, staff were rude, patrons were rude and crammed-in together, we felt like we were in an assembley line. the exhibits were interesting, but outdated, no wow factor, it felt more like a museum than an entertainment venue. Interesting...
