“Great for kids, adults get bored”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

I visited this museum with my adult brother, and while we thought some of the displays were interesting, we got bored quickly. That's mostly because the museum is geared toward kids, and a lot of experiments are set up at kid level. I think a small group of kids ages 7-11 would have an incredible time here!

“Fun for all ages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

This lakefront attraction will wow kids and adults. There is plenty to see and do. Don't miss the Great Lakes freighter moored next to it.

“Great Learning Place for Kids of All Ages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

We have taken our grandchildren (ages 7and 9) several times to the Science Center. It is always a treat and they enjoy the experience a great deal. Their favorite area is the children's play area, but that does not discount any other sections. Lots for kids to learn in a fun way.

“A great family outing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

This hands on museum is very geared towards school age kids and very interactive. We went as a group of adults and it was not so interesting but vowed to return when kids were the right age

“Great Summer Camps”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

My son went to a couple of the summer camps and had a great time. The staff was very friendly and helpful and he learned a lot. We will probably sign him up again next summer.
