  • The Exploreum was a bit smaller than I expected and some of the exhibits were closed for remodeling or updating when we were there on a Friday afternoon. The staff we interacted with was quite friendly and knowledgeable on the exhibits. I think our conversations with one of the staff was my favorite part of the experience. Our older elementary age and middle school age kids were entertained but not fascinated. But I think younger aged kids might enjoy it a bit more.
  • This place is awesome. Brought my kids. But I think I enjoyed it way more than them! I wish i would have found the back exhibits earlier. I went closer to closing and they were cleaning the ball pit for kids. My daughter would have had the best time. We stopped and got ice cream before going home. The gift shop has items on clearance as well.
