  • Great place for kids and the hands on learning is enjoyable for them. The place is a bit small, so it doesn’t take much time to cover it all, even with a movie. Staff are friendly and though the gift shop is small, there’s still a decent bit of things for kids to enjoy.
  • I loved it! Saw the Apollo 11 movie. My only complaints are that one of the employees seemed drunk (reeked of alcohol and acted it), and that the endangered/extinct animals exhibit will be going away in October.
