This science center was designed so well. It's amazing! There are so many different rooms and exhibits. We loved the room for kids to explore and the space exhibits. The game room was amazing! It showcased many different games and systems. There are food options and bathrooms spread throughout the museum. The parking is free for members. Easy drop off and pickup lane.
Amazing place. You can even save on parking by the planetarium. It is free but it well worth seeing it from the other side. The staff is super helpful and there is a lot of things for the kids to see. Well worth a visit.
