  • My children absolutely love this place. They could spend all day here if you let them. It's well worth the money! They are also very strict with their COVID rules.  more »

  • The atmosphere was scientific with lots of fun. This was a birthday party for 10 year old twins. It was both outside and inside. So much fun and so little time. The parking lot was bigger than I remembered with a number of handicapped parking spaces. Everything was handicapped accessible. The science worked on all the exhibits I was able to get to that day. I will go back.
  • Fantastic children's museum with intelligent exhibits and tons of interaction. Definitely a place where you won't see it all in one trip. My five year old are it up. He was enthralled with the wide variety of high quality well maintained play and learning areas. I would go back tomorrow if I didn't live a thousand miles away. The magic house and the city museum made for an amazing weekend!
