Overall it was a good experience, and the kids seemed to enjoy themselves. There was one worker who seemed to be losing her patience when the kids stopped listening to her and maybe it was just an off day for her. We were there as part of a bigger group outing and there was little bit of chaos, but we will be coming back - just the family - and hope the smaller group changes the experience.
The kids I took enjoyed their experience overall but we were all a little disappointed. The mobile website was very difficult to navigate and so we didn’t notice that the science center was being redone in certain areas. Many of the exhibits that were available were marked out of order. I won’t be returning until everything is done and wouldn’t recommend it for older kids. We stopped at every exhibit available with two 8 year olds and it only took about an hour to explore it all. Hopefully once things are back in order it will be a more pleasurable experience.
