  • I'm in love with this place! It brings the kid in me back out to explore new things and revisit some old memories! Very reasonable on the prices. It's Highly recommended if you or your family love all forms of science! Its a fun way to learn!
  • Our grandsons,ages 13 and almost 3 were not bored. Our 13 year old compared it to hands on fun not like other science museums. There were games, activities and the bonus was the playground area. LB cafe was convenient but pricey. DOWNSIDE We did not get to do the hourly events due to lack of Mill organizing. We waited an hour to do the silo tour and put off the shark show when the Silo tour WAS only 10 minutes long. Then we went to wait for the shark show and missed the turtle feeding.
