Science Mill reviews
We took our 5 year old son and he loved all the interactive exhibits and seeing the different animals! I highly recommend this place for families with kids.

What a fun place for kids! This was our first time visiting and my kids really enjoyed it! So many amazing exhibits and places to see indoors and outdoors. I also love that there’s a cafe connected to it. We will definitely be back in the future!
As a science center enthusiast I can say this was one of the coolest places I have visited and certainly exceptional for the area. I went on a weekday and had plenty of space and time to navigate the multiple areas within the complex. The initial few rooms had some of the best interactive art and it was nice to see how the old building had been made new again. Following that the greenhouse was of interest for it had so many components and incorporated many scientific subjects. The plants, fish, and systems all looked healthy and happy. The outdoor section was pretty great too with an emphasis on kinetic elements and a very very massive interactive animatronic hand. All in all very cool and worth checking out!
