Our four year old as well as us adults had a BLAST at this fun hands on science experience. It was great! If you can read and follow directions your in for some racing, airplane making, parachute launching fun! Had fun!

We have a membership to another science museum (Allentown's Davinci Center) and thought we'd give this one a try because it is a reciprocal membership. It was hard to tell on the website what was the right age group for this place. We have a five and seven year old and I'd say it was perfect. We had a good time, but I wouldn't say we were chomping at the bit to head back again and again.....but if you a visiting the area and want some indoor fun , I'd definitely recommend it.

We've been twice to the Lancaster Science Factory, and we have enjoyed it both times. The best thing about the Science Factory is that the exhibits are housed within one very large room, so we can let our children explore the exhibits without hovering over them. The Science Factory is a good place to spend a couple of hours, and it is entirely hands-on. The explanations of the science behind the exhibits are written at a somewhat high level, but children of all ages can still enjoy the experience. If you are a member of a science center elsewhere, this museum has reciprocity, so you can enter for free. There is also a 'build your own kinex' area, in which you build something, weigh it, and purchase it so that you can bring it home.

Go and plan to have hands-on fun! My 5 yr old loves this place. He's too young to understand all of the science behind the fun but still has a blast everytime we go! A fun trip for all ages over 3 yrs old!
