  • We visited the Pompei exhibit and the submarine. The Pompei exhibit was excellent. The submarine tour was a waste of money.

  • I highly recommend the Pompeii exhibit for adults and older children. The rest of the place is great for kids of all ages. Don't forget to go downstairs to see the robots.

  • There are 4 floors of wonderful interactive learning experiences!! Every age from 2 years and up will find something to do and learn. I'm 65 and had so much fun on every floor. Highly recommend. The food in the cafe was good and not way over priced.
  • I’ve been coming here since I was a kid and I always had a great time exploring with my family. I recently came back for the first time in a long time for a networking event in one of their event spaces and had a great experience. I would consider hosting events here for sure. The space was amazing with good city views, the food was delicious, and the staff was super helpful and friendly. I can’t wait to come back to see the Pompeii exhibit!
