  • This place was really fun for my whole family. My husband and I enjoyed exploring with our kids, ages 9 and 6. There was enough hands-on stuff to keep the kids entertained as well as educated. We plan on visiting again for different events and to see inside the dome.
  • Loved it! The energy was great. The facility was clean and organized. Great for kids of all ages. If you're looking for something interesting fun active and learning all in one this is the place to go. Don't over think just go. You won't regret it.
