  • As the name suggests on another meaning, If you want to make your kids interested in Science or sound, make their brain gets the spark, bring them here. They have amazing collection of artifacts here. My two kids thoroughly enjoyed the museum. Also if you are going on a weekend, do not miss the show at 2:30pm. That will make them happy. They had 3 Tesla coil in the show. Also, if you have a pacemaker, that show is not for you, stay outside. It deals with high voltage stuff, so why take risks? All in all, it worth for your kids and your insider nerd.. We may be back someday.
  • We saw the electricity show culminating with two from of our party experiencing the lightning bolts of the Megazapper (an enormous Tesla coil) from INSIDE the museum's custom-built Faraday cage! It was awesome, fun, and educational. The museum exhibits were really interesting, many were interactive, and the staff was on hand ready to answer questions and give demos of many of the museum pieces. All in all, a wonderful museum!
