The only reason I gave this an average this time is bc we have been here so many times and this year we went to the Chicago Science Museum and of course that tops all science museums. But don't get me wrong this is a really fun museum! We come here usually to purchase the science museum memberships that get you into other ones virtually free like the Chicago ones. ITs really the way to go for a large family of 7 bc these museums can get costly. This particular one is free and that's why its such a hit. We like this one too bc even though its way smaller than some, it still has a lot of hands on things to do albeit things are getting a tad older and a little dirtier. But the staff here is really nice. We got tickets to see the Butterfly Imax and the Planetarium (it came free w/the membership ;) and that was a really fun experience for the littler ones. Yes most of the stuff was geared towards older kids but my teen still enjoyed pretending to extract fake blood in the lab. The littler ones liked the dino area :) THe parking is overly priced but we always found one right by the street and took a short walk to it. I wouldn't leave it there at night though but for a short couple hours, it works. We still like the bridge that overlooks down to the freeway below-that's always a hit for our family. All in all a must for first timers and to get family passes!
