“Good way to expose the kids to science”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

My 4 year old really enjoyed this place. Lots to see and do. You name it, they have it. Her favorite attraction was the little machine that blows puffs of air and you can watch balls dance over it. She also enjoyed the pulley chairs. Nice way to spend a few hours with the kids.

“Small, but Lots of Fun”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

When I first walked in and saw how small this place was, my expectations were not high. There were some decent displays on the top floor, but nothing especially impressive. It was went we went to the second level that it really got impressive. There was a giant LEGO display of Manchester back when it was a factory town. This was without a doubt the biggest LEGO display I have seen in my life, and I have been to other impressive LEGO areas such as the LEGO display at the Mall of America. There were a few other interesting science exhibits around, but nothing to match the LEGO display. In fact, several of the other exhibits don't seem to work anymore, which I suspect is because they have been damaged by the many children running around. Overall, this is a recommended stop in Manchester for the LEGO display by itself. It's something you have to experience for yourself. You will leave impressed.

“Fun, educational, GREAT for LEGO fanatics!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The SEE Science Center is a must-go experience for everyone, whether or not you have children in tow. Lots to see and do. The LEGO Millyard exhibit is amazing; an entire replica of the Manchester Millyard designed out of LEGOS and displayed so that you can walk around and peak into buildings, under bridges, and around the roadways. Amazing craftsmanship! We brought my son, who was in his early 20s at the time, and he loved the exhibit as it brought back his childhood memories of playing endlessly with LEGOS.

The museum has experiential activities and climbing space for children to enjoy. A perfect play-ce to go on those rainy afternoons when you and your children are hoping to work off some energy. Have fun!

“Entertainment for an hour or a few”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Kids love it here. They never tire of the exhibits, such as the pulley chairs and the ball things on the top floor. Add in a moon walk and some down time building with legos and call it a day.

“Family fun”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

My boys enjoy it here. It's a smaller museum, but still fun for the kids. My 3 year old loves to look at the giant Lego millyard downstairs and both boys love to play in the "garden" area upstairs.
