“Fun place to play”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

I love to play with all the science gizmos! This is a hands-on experience that the kids will love. The Omnimax movies are also an interesting experience.

“Great for kiddos!”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

This is a great hands-on experience of fun for the family! Come early and plan for all day! Start out walking all thrugh the museum. Then take a break at the snack shop there for lunch. Relax while you watch a movie at their attached Omnimax (better than IMAX) and then walk some more in the museum! Great day!

“Great afternoon activity!”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

We spent a few hours one afternoon at the museum with our 4 and 6 year olds. They enjoyed every minute of the museum despite some of the science being above their comprehension levels. We did see the Rocky Mountain Express at their Imax theatre, and we all enjoyed it. It's obvious that there are some upgrades and remodeling going on, but there's plenty to explore and see!

“Very educational”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Exhibits were amazing...however, we found many touch screen interactive exhibits were broken.....Dinosaur that is on a motion detector was cool......has a huge set of teeth.....we had four boys with us from ages 6 to 2....so we kept making cavities....way educational.

“This is a great museum, but don't eat there.”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

Science Spectrum was a wonderful experience for the grandkids, but maybe museums and food just don't mix.
