  • This museum is outstanding to the max! Our 16 yo wanted to go while we were in town and I was a bit worried that it would be too young for him to really enjoy, but we all had a blast! My husband and I were just as entertained as he was! The staff were all excellent and the bathrooms were super clean, which seems to be more and more rare these days. We even got to take home our own trinket we made from the 3D printer! Our favorite part was the food sorting machine where you had to put wooden blocks of food into the correct spaces on a conveyor belt I Love Lucy Style! It was just an all around great experience! Highly recommend to families of all ages!
  • Amazing place! Well worth the price. So much to do and learn. Will keeps kids and adults occupied for hours. My 4yo loved it. Very educational and fun for kids of all ages.
