“Grossology Exhibit”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

I was initially worried that my preteen kids would be bored. I was surprised to find out that my kids liked it very much. Each exhibit kept their attention. It was all hands on too. Other that the price, it's a must visit if you're in the area.

“Terrific Visit”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

This place could keep children occupied for hours. There are so many hands on fun and active exhibits that the kids were not bored for even a minute. The staff was great and genuinely interested in helping or teaching about their area. Don't miss the shadow room. It's tucked away in a corner and was one of the children's favorites. The featured exhibit was "Grossology." It was definitely gross, but the kids LOVED it.The center is also located close to Dorney Park.

“Hands-on Science fun”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

This is a fun and educational Center. Took my granddaughters ages 6 & 3 and they didn't want
to leave. There was a pre-school room with large soft blocks to stack and build, story books, counting area, many activities to keep a preschooler occupied for sometime. There are two floors of learning activities and fun things to do. Admission is 4-12 $8.95; adult $11.95 well worth all they
have to offer a young mind.

“Kids like it”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We have a membership to the science center because the kids enjoy it. It's a nice place to go for an hour or two. They have a wide variety of hands-on exhibits and always have some kind of special exhibit going on to keep the experience new. My kids particularly like the tank of sea creatures, the exhibits on electricity, the bluescreen area where you can pretend to be a weather forecaster on TV, and the physics demonstrations on the second floor.

“Great experience”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

I had to laugh at the other reviews. Take your kids to the body exhibit? That's your own fault for any traumatization. Prices too high? It's because the body exhibit is extra. We went to see the exhibit in Vegas and it was great and worth the money. I would never ever take my children to the exhibit. And perhaps everyone Should read about the history of the exhibit before talking about ethics. Ignorance. Please educate yourself and take responsibility for your own actions.
