“Enjoyed ourselves immensely!!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Had a wonderful time with the family at this Science Center. We enjoyed the Imax 3D & Planetarium shows. My son even tried out the High Wire bike which was suspended above the 1st floor - He's 18 and ut brought me back to his younger days of being a little tike. The water exhibit was so much fun. Great place to visit.

“Good special exhibits”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We went to the Leonardo DaVinci exhibit= well done and ver informative. After wandering through the exhibit, we went through the rest of the Center- very active with lots of children. We enjoyed trying out the interactive pieces and learned quite a bit. Good for a family outing or for those looking for an bit of education on a lazy day.

“LOVED our time here”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We especially spent a lot of time at the Human Body Exhibit. Great for kids and parents. It was fun, interactive and a great way to escape the desert heat. Located conveniently near ASU campus and the historical square.

“First class museum”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Took our 3 grandsons to this museum and they thoroughly enjoyed it. so may of the attractions were of the hands-on kind. The grandsons enjoyed forces of nature, the planetarium, and the digital world exhibits. the adults also enjoyed the exhibits. well designed for all age groups.
