Every child should get to experience the Science Center. There is so much to take in, you need all day. Fun for adults too.

We've visited the Science Center a number of times and we enjoy the renovations they've made to the Sports Center. Since it gets very crowded, we went there first. We had about 10 minutes until a huge crowd showed up. Luckily, the place is big and we didn't have to wait too long for anything in spite of the influx of people. Some displays were not working which is disappointing. Our favorite places in the science center are the robots and the games. Personally, I love the train area but my husband and boys would rather do something hands-on. It's an interesting place to spend several hours. If you have a membership to an ASTC museum, you can visit the museum for free.

My son and grandson had the best time at the Carnegie Science Center and Sports Works - the miniature trains were so awesome - and the restaurant had great food. It was so much fun.

The science center does a model train exhibit for the holidays, and while it may sound corny, it is done really, really well. The recreation of Forbe's Field is worth going to see. The rest of the museum is very nice and has lots of things for the kids to do, including the sports center next door.

Just so so but the exhibits were just great. The selections were not all available and with the crowd they should have been better prepared.
