  • I love this place. I brought my kids here for a couple different camps and they totally loved them. One was a single night deal after closing time with a pizza party. My wife and I had a nice dinner nearby while we waited. The second was summer camp that was all week long. The science center has a wonderful staff who are great with kids and just a million different activities they can do. If you sign up for the newsletter you can see when they offer the different camps. Also, they use a great security system to make sure kids only leave with approved adults.
  • We love using our Homeschool Pass to visit here. Every month there are new experiments and last time we got to watch them feed the snakes. My kids love it. Ages 2 to 8, there's something for all of them.
