“Great fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

We always make it a point to visit science museums, and this is probably one of the best. We got our tickets half price since we went later in the day, and we still had time to see everything. Very kid friendly, we had a wonderful time.

“Interesting experience”

It was very informative with lots of interactive displays that we could test out. Particularly liked the section downstairs with the oil donkey and cotton bales

“We come several times a year.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

We love children's museums and we frequent this one often. It has plenty to do for children ages 5-14. Very young and very old children may get a little bored. There are sections for young children and a large mathematics section the older ones might like but elementary school and middle school aged will have the most fun. It also has a large Louisiana exhibit complete with local wildlife. It's not the biggest children's museum but it's a fun way to spend an afternoon.

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

We had such a great time the entire time we were there. We were 2 adults 6 kids ages 7 - 13. There was just so much for the kids and adults to do. I loved the event schedule we did everything except the digestive systems, and stingray shuffle. We even caught the IMax show Into the Artic. The show was good, but I would have thought it would have been longer than 45 mins. This was our first IMax show, and we loved the fact that the screen was practically all around us. The Red River adventure was cute, and gave info on the river. I liked it because we live about 15 mins from the river in Texas. It was so fun we would go again.

“way overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

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
