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.
