We took our 9, 12,13, and 16 yr old to sci-port. In my opinion it is way overpriced. The displays are mediocure at best. Wonderworks in is way better. We saw the air racers movie and it was the most boring thing I have ever seen

Great place to take your kids, they learn science through interactive displays without realizing they are learning something. Fun for adults too! The IMAX theater is great for kids and adults.

We live in the Shreveport/Bossier area and the kids LOVE going to Sciport. We always buy a membership because it gives the kids something fun to do that is indoors during the summer months. We also use our memberships on vacations because we get in free to a ton of different museums in the country! There are always different "traveling" attractions that come to Sciport. For instance, the Titanic artifact exhibit was here not too long ago. I went twice because it was so interesting! There is always something fun to do at Sciport!

We attended Sci Port for a 5 year old girl birthday party. There was limited parking due to the Holiday in Dixie Festival taking place at the same time but we were ale to find one spot to park. The party itself was educational and fun for the kids. However, I felt the party host expected these 4 & 5 years to know more info about sea creatures, all in all my child had fun and that's all that matters!

The kids love Sci-Port, we go every time we visit our family in Shreveport. Great layout, easy to navigate. The Titanic Exhibit that was there last year was amazing! The kids are now 8 and 9 but I think we have a few more years to enjoy Sci-Port, and they agree.
