  • This is a very good place to spend 3-4 hours with your kids. Mini zoo, mini aquarium, science movies; it got it all in just one place.

  • My son absolutely loved the penguins. Very nice aquarium. The zoo is cool and has a pets type zoo area. There is a lot for toddlers to do as well with play areas throughout the science center. The dinosaur exhibit is cool and so was the reptiles and such below! 2 levels and outside.
  • AMAZING! I Loved it and in the dinosaur room with those weird 3d hologram looking things were so cool. I loved the aquarium because it was really hot outside at the time but the outside zoo was also amazing. Unfortunately we didn't get to see all the animals because we were outside with a bunch of kids and we also didn't get to go to the petting zoo but it overall was an amazing experience and if it wasn't so far away I would probably go more often, I've only been once but I would definitely go back a few times.
