The model train exhibit was huge and marvelous. The children loved it. A great place to visit! Parking is readily available and affordable. There is a lot for everyone to see.

“A fun place to learn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

A wonderful museum filled with so many activities for all. Love the IMAX theater that is here. The museum did a wonderfully job when they hosted the exhibit The Body.

“Good fun for kids and adults”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

We spent about 2.5 hours at the Science Center and the kids (12 and 14 y/o) had a great time. Some of the attractions have a very long wait (90 minutes plus) so plan extra time for those.

There were a few attractions that were old-school and could use some updating, but overall well worth the time and money.
The submarine tour was a highlight!
