“A fun learning experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

The math and science center is a must if you have kids or grand kids from 4 to high school age. There are exhibits, all hands on, for all ages. Mom and Pop, or Grandma and Grandpa, will also enjoy this wonderful hands on facility. Plan on about 2-3 hours of really great fun education. Individual or small group interaction with knowledgeable adult volunteers is virtually always available. By the way, the fee is very small.

“Great place for the kids! Lots to do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

We took our kids here (ages 4, 6 and 8) and we all had a great time. There are so many activities for the kids to do and - hooray - they can learn while they play! Everything from bubbles, magnets, wavelenghts, several species of live bugs and a lizard, sound, light, building infrastructure, weather, etc. The list goes on and on. And it was cheap, too. We were so glad we came here - the next time we're in Grand Junction, we'll definitely be coming back!

“Hands on for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

Our kids, ages 4, 8 & 12, enjoyed so many of the exhibits. There are many things to try and explore. It is not a typical museum. It is smaller scale but it is very affordable and very educational. The volunteers are very helpful and will educate and instruct you on just how things work. Of course we had trouble getting our 4 year old away from the first exhibit - bubbles!

“great learning experience for all ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

This is a hands on center for children and adults that provides a broad range of science activities for the whole family. Worth the price for a nice diversion from the normal tourist activities. This is a great family place.
