“Good fun for little ones”
Reviewed October 8, 2009

We had a great time. There was plenty of time for our 4yo, 7yo, and 9yo to do. It was clean and the exhibits are lots of fun and very interactive. There is easily 2 hours or more of exibits to check out.

We visted from out of town and used our ATSC membership from a museum in our hometown to gain free admission for this trip.

“An afternoon of fun”
Reviewed July 15, 2009

We were a little worried when we saw that Sci-Quest was located in a non-descript building at a community college, but there was no need for concern. The exhibits were engaging, fun, and educational. Our young kids had a great time.

Reviewed June 10, 2009

We took our 2 year old granddaughter. This is a very child friendily museum. Can be educational for older children. We will return to visit.

“A fun, interactive place”
Reviewed August 7, 2007

We visited Sci-quest and, I must say, at first, I was not impressed. It looked like a big open shopping center. My opinion soon changed as we explored many hands on scientific exhibits with our daughter. Our favorite things were the Earthquake simulator, the gross out section (explaining various body functions, like burping) and the huge bubbles. Other areas of exploration include sound, light and motion. Save $$ by going to the Hunstville Visitor Center and getting a 20% off coupon for admission. We didn't do the interactive theater, so I can't comment on that. Overall, we were pleased.
