Kids had a blast at the sportsworks center and in the museum itself. It was crowded, but there was enough to do on each floor that it wasn't overly crowded.

Hello, pennparm! Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad your family had fun here. You're right, it's a great place to spend a rainy day. It's also perfect for those hot, humid, sticky days when being outdoors saps everybody's energy. Come on in where it's cool and let the kids blow off steam in Highmark SportsWorks as they climb a rock wall or bounce or sprint! Thanks again!

It was very cool, full-scale NASA spacelab with view of Earth as seen from orbit. Geared towards tech with a robot Hall of Fame. The WWII submarine is in fine shape and is a well-preserved piece of US naval history. Fine gift shop and bookstore.

We belong to a science museum in Michigan so our visit was free but our son had to pay $18. It had a lot of things to do from space, sounds, children's play area, sports, robots and a submarine. We were there for 3 hours and still wish we could have spent more time in some of the areas we liked best as in the robots area and the sports area. Great visit for the whole family. My husband and myself, our grown son, and 3 grandkids ages 10, 5, and 3 all really enjoyed this museum Can't wait until I can return.

Some of the highlights are the submarine, which is cool. The robots are awesome, and they have lots of hand on action!!!!!!
