  • In town for a wedding, wanted to take the kids someplace fun. Figured a place like the Portland Science Center would be a good idea. Said they had an exhibit about sharks, so we headed over. The price was pretty high for a place that doesn't have reciprocity but hey... Then we got in and realized "the exhibit" was all there was. It was interesting enough, but I gotta say it's not very clear that that's really all there is there. Can't recommend it. Oh. Plus the parking is $5 an hour.
  • This is a one exhibit science center, not really hands on, and expensive. It is, however, very cool. The pirate exhibit we saw was very text focused, and not great for kids who couldn't read, or were under the age of maybe 5.
