Give yourself a full day to see everything. If you're short on time, skip the submarine tour and see the Planetarium show instead.

The children enjoyed the various displays of technology, games, learning environments etc. Was very impressed by the Lego exhibition that took place while we were there.

I like their special shows. The regular displays are just okay, but don't pass up the exhibit rooms with the experiments and activities. Kids & adults can learn a lot in there.

Parking was easy and the line to pay was quick. One side of the museum has an exhibit hall which had a Lego exhibit, which was cool to see what could be built. Upstairs there was a nature section, space section, and a human body section - each were well done with viewing and interactive exhibits. Across the museum there was the 'science' section with all kinds of exhibits on force, flight, electricity, etc. Kids also enjoyed the 'Ball Room' where they get to shoot balls from air powered tubes. The IMAX theatre was a typical IMAX. The submarine tour was excellent - the guide was very enthusiastic and made the tour informative and fun. We came at 11am, only had a very quick food break, and stayed until closing and could have used some more time to spend at the exhibits. Would definitely visit again!

A little pricey, but worth it. Check out their discount days.
