Thank goodness for gps or we never would have found this gem of a place. I'm not sure who had more fun and learned more, the adults or the kids! Admission is a bit high but worth it. We got in for free since we are ASTC members. Exhibits are high quality and interactive, nothing "out of order". HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

My kids had fun (that's all that matters) but some of the exhibits, toys, etc were missing items or not working. We have been in other places that were much better. I think it could be a better pl;ace with some routine maintenance. Hopefully that will be addressed soon, or I don't see this place having much of a future. Overall a fun place for kids.

We've been to several science centers in various cities, and this one was at the bottom of the barrel. Exhibits were falling apart, dirty, or missing parts. The toddler area was a joke -- we have better toys at home! Not impressed.

The Science enter is cool because besides all the hands on exhibits for kids, they have a laser light show in the planetarium set to music. It's a fun place to go, and isn't very expensive. You can spend a few hours there.

We went to the Adventure Science Center with our grandchildren ages 5 to 16 and all of us enjoyed it. There were a couple of exhibits that were missing some of the components, but overall it was interesting and a good place to spend a few hours. Nothing felt really crowded and we were able to try all the
