Arizona Science Center reviews
The Science Center had many interesting and interactive displays and would be a great visit for families with children. The price was reasonable, but we felt it should have included the planetarium..... more »
Awesome hands on exhibits. The displays were very engaging for all ages. Be sure to get your parking ticket validated or pay a steep fee. more »
Our first stop was the Mummy Exhibit. I was very impressed with this particular exhibit. I have been to several other mummy exhibits throughout the years and I have to say this was the most informative and inclusive of world-wide occurrences that I have seen. No phones, cameras, or video are allowed inside the exhibit itself. You start out as a group but you can go as fast or as slow as you would like. I took a bit longer than the rest of my group and it was not a problem. There is a lot of written information as well as the displays themselves. This particular exhibit is a rotating one so it is not always at the Science Center.
I'm always looking for fun things to do indoors to occupy my 2-year-old. Bonus for AZ Science Center - 2 and under are free, which made it affordable to go. The center is amazing, but I found that it is definitely more age-appropriate for elementary and up. But my little one still had a lot of fun pushing buttons to make things light up, etc, even if she didn't understand what each exhibit was about. She especially enjoyed the outside water area. I think it would be awesome if they could have a special area that is made for pre-school and under. I think it would make a lot of parents (and kids) happy.
