“A Wonderful Place for a Family Outing”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

The main science center has interesting "technical" exhibits for the science-oriented person(child or adult) as well as a great play area for youngsters to burn off some energy. The Sport Center lets you test athletic skills and burn off more energy. You can test your baseball throwing speed, jump heights, balance, etc. This is really fun for youngsters, but even adults can be challenged. Definitely worth a visit.

“A great place to visit with the kids.”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

I especially liked the tour of the submarine. Exhibits are better for elementary and middle school kids.

“Kids love it”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

My kids loved this place. Very hands on and kid friendly. In my opinion a 6 year old will love it more than a 16 year old. Dont miss the sports science center next door. So much fun!
