“Best Value in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

For a couple of dollars you get hours of hands on (educational) entertainment for yourself and all the children in your family. We took two of our grandchildren, 14 year old granddaughter and 4 year old grandson. We were as enchanted as they were with everything there ( and I'm a physics major)

“You Gotta Go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Walked by this place and discounted it as an art gallery until I noticed the water-table. Inside, interactive exhibits built with the craft of fine furniture and fun! It's not big and not science-center glitzy but that's a large part of the attraction. And only $2 admission - what a deal.

“Entertaining Educational and Economical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I spent a couple of hours at Mindport with my 14 yr old daughter. We enjoyed all of the exhibits and had a few good laughs. Only $2 admission, great value!! And the exhibits are locally made.

“A full hour or more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Bring the kids - you and they will have a fun time trying different little experiments. It's a fun hour or two and for only $2 each well worth it. SStreet. Parking only so bring $1+ in change for the meter.

“Awesome little find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

What a great, unique find. Hard to describe what this place is but if you are in downtown Bellingham definitely check it out. It is a great hands-on experience for kids and adults. It sort of combines physics,science, music, art and logic. Each display has a binder that you can read if you want to know about the physics behind each invention, or you can just play with them and be awed. Apparently each invention was made by an employee. Some of them are works of art too. My daughters favourite was a handmade theremin. For only $2 it is the best deal in town, and i don't know how they maintain it for that price. I would have gladly donated more. It is not a big place and you could miss it if you weren't looking for it so keep an eye put for it.
