One of our favorite stops in Ashland; very participatory and hands-on, even for grownups. Can be rather noisy when it's full of school groups.

My child loved it; we spent the whole day!

Exhibits are great; especially the dinosaurs...although they look and sound so real, they can be a little scary for kids.

Be careful with bubbles in bubble room as soap stings kids eyes when they get on hands and don't wash off.

The climbing play structure outside was a total hit.

Bring lunch so you can spend whole day.

Really great experience for kids under 5. Will definitely go back when in Ashland.

This is hands down among the best children's museums in Northern California/Oregon. I loved the hands on and the dark room (strobes light.)
The bubble room, as at any museum, was a huge hit! Their bubble mix was perfect!
The dinosaur exhibit was amazing. Lots of hands on, plan to spend at least a few hours.

I took two 3 year olds for an adventure at Scienceworks, and we had a great time. It was busy with many patrons but we could always find space to explore something or play. Special area for younger children to play and safe. Many, many hands on things to do.

All the displays are hands-on, so if your kid isn't ready for that, then there's not much for both of you to do.
