I had my son's 3rd birthday here and it was so fun for everyone. We rented a party room for 2 hours (very reasonable cost) and brought snacks and a cake. It was so nice to have everyone entertained the whole time. I will totally book birthdays there in the future! There's just so much to do for all ages (even the babies)!

I went with a very curious 3 yr old. The mix of exhibits was good and held their attention. If you're going with a young child, get there early. The main exhibits get a little chaotic with older kids as the day goes on. If you've been to many science museums in bigger cities, you will find many of these exhibits familiar. The buble room is a nice touch. And there was a lot we didn't get to after 2 hrs. There is no Cafeteria, so if you Will be there over lunch, bring your own. Saw two staff people the whole time we were there, including the one at the membership desk. I would come back yearly.

As spoken by my nine year old. This is a great place to take the kids. Scienceworks is entertaining and can be very educational. The interactive exhibits are great at demonstrating many of the basic principles of science. They are interesting and fun for for the kids and adults. Many exhibits are fun to just play with for the kids and become educational when they are prompted to ask themselves "why does it do that?"

The exhibits are changed at different intervals with some having been there for several years but many changed out every couple of months.

With four children, I take advantage of joining. Two times per year pays for the membership and there are a great benefits at other science related attractions throughout the west. This is a great rainy day option (so much better than video games) or on days when weather turns us away from Mt. Ashland.

This is a fun spot to take even the toddlers.
Lots of stuff to look at and touch.
Inexpensive and a great, educational way to spend a few hours.
