  • Their membership is the best if you live out here. Buy the family membership and get reciprocity in Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago. It is amazing!!!

  • Great hands on museum, plenty to do for several hours. Kids and 1-13 would have a lot to do here for hours on end.

  • From the outside I wasn't expecting much, but I was so so wrong. They had so many exhibits and fun things to learn and do. My kids loved it and even after playing for 2 and 1/2 hours there were still not ready to go. And the extra dollar per ticket was totally worth it to see the special exhibit. It is a must stop for those with kids. Especially on days that are well into the 90s and 100s (it was cool inside on a super hot and muggy day).
  • Great place for kids and adults alike! A small amount of the exhibits are out of order and overall it could use some maintenance, but this place has a lot to see and do regardless. We had an absolute blast trying everything we could, both indoors and out. And very reasonable pricing to boot. It was definitely a memorable experience and worth the trip.
