We enjoyed our visit to the powerhouse even though we did not have kids with us. The history of the building is well displayed. it was unfortunate that there were many exhibits/activities that were non-functional (dead batteries, blown lightbulbs, computer program non-responsive, etc)

PERFECT if your children need to play and run off some energy! Plus it is all educational! Look for stuff for adults too!

Had some time to kill so, why not right? We were very impressed. We have a 5 and 3 year old and they were able to perform every task and learned a lot inthe process. If you are neer Durango with children give this place a chance.
