  • Perfect for easy learning for a few quick hours. Not sure on lunch selection; we ate before we arrived.  more »
  • Kids had a ball can't wait to go back. Will come in handy if my daughter goes to Cedar Crest. So many awesome exhibits not sure we saw them all.  more »
  • Great place to take the kids that's right by our house. The downstairs exhibits are always really well done and they rotate different exhibits in and out. Lots of fun stuff that really teaches the kids some stuff. Pretty crowded but you can still get to all the stuff they have. Upstairs is a little less exciting. Usually always the same stuff. Still some neat stuff though. Paid admission. Plenty of parking. They do parties.
  • Great Science Museum for the kids. Sign up for an annual membership and you can get reciprocal membership to other participating ASTC museums around the country. Their current "Space" exhibits are nice. The ball pit / ball play area is good for younger kids under 7.
