Owner description: Visitors can journey through the original Russian MIR space station, as well as other exhibits.

I did enjoy some of the exhibits. I am 24 and my fiance is 29. We are like big kids and can't wait to have kids so we don't look stupid doing kid things. If you have young kids, this place would be a blast! It would be very educational and would be fun to watch their reactions. We had fun playing with exhibits and making some of them a competitions but it was a bit pricey for what it is. Like some of the other reviews, I do agree that the exploratory needs and upgrade. It was very clean however, they do wipe down the exhibits frequently which to me, is a big deal.

Our eleven year old boy/girl twins stated this place was the highlight of their Dells trip. That says a lot because we stayed at a waterpark hotel. This place has tons of interesting exhibits that appeal to young, middle and older children, as well as adults. I felt like a kid again!

Dont waste your money on going here. The hands on exhibits were horrible. Most of them not working at all and no organization to the tour. People every where and some exhibits you could not do because the line was so long. Dont waste your time or money to do this.

My whole family enjoyed this museum - it's definitely something for younger children, but there are a lot of activities to try - the kids will love the robots!

We had a coupon. This was a quick hour on the way out of town from our trip. About what we expected. Interesting. Nothing terribly fresh or new.
