  • I have been going to the science center for 20 years now and I love it every time. The different exhibits and and experiences offered. The only thing I suggest so going from the first floor up to see everything and you will need to go a few time to really accomplish that but lot of people take the elevator and get lost. But if you're up for a great experience and a bit of walking. Handicap accessible.
  • I have been coming here for ages. My nephew enjoyed it, but a lot is not working. Overall it was okay. We did the planetarium show on the solar system... if you don’t have some background in Physics and/or astronomy, don’t go to this talk. 1) The person doing the talk was going so fast that it was hard to understand what they were saying. By the time you figured out the words you missed the next 5 sentences that were said. Sounded like I was in an auction. 2) Very advanced talk. Not much explanation, and if there is, it is at a high level. I was okay with it because I understood it, but not everyone will (especially little ones). Overall, for the price, it is not worth it anymore. I got in for free due to a membership that’s why it received 3 stars but if I had to pay, my rating would be a lot lower.
