Children of all ages will enjoy this interactive, educational & fun attraction. Child-friendly restaurants are nearby & a stroll through Olde Towne will complete your visit.

This is where I want to have my 60th birthday party (which is coming up sooner rather than later). For the young and the young at heart alike, this is a wonderful place to spend more than one day. It's worth getting a membership so you can revisit as often as you like. So much to see and do!

My younger children like it so much that I purchased a membership so that our childcare provider can keep them busy during the summer months. My older child (12 years) was bored but it at least gave her some peaceful moments while her siblings stayed occupied

This place is as good as the other reviews say.

Would advise arriving early on a weekend. It definitely started filling up around 11 am.

Planetarium show would have been great, but new employee had no clue how to turn off the lights so the first five minutes of the show couldn't be seen because it was too bright in the theater.

A well run, well maintained, interesting and fun place to spend a day. We were only able to spend two hours here in the morning but we enjoyed it so much that we looped back and spent the last hour of the day hitting the sections that we missed. We had our 20 month old gran daughter with us and she had a ball. The Bubble room was a hit, the play area was fun and all of the exhibits had something for her to do. Next time we're in Portsmouth, this will definitely be one of our stops. Highly recommended.
