  • Great experience for the whole family. Took my 7 and 3 year old cousins who were completely captivated by each floor. The top favorites were the stingray touch tank and the Dino excavation area...

  • We had a great first time visit to the science center. There was definitely something for everyone in my family. We especially loved the area for younger kids!

  • Great place to take family of all ages. My son and I went, we both had a great time. Lots of room for the young ones to feel free while learning.
  • I planned a trip to visit the Science Center on 11 December with my grandkids. The facility was pretty crowded but not claustrophobic. The facility was clean and the exhibits were quite interesting. Parking is $5 per vehicle which was unexpected but manageable.
