  • Amazing place, so many of the exhibits were interactive. Brought a 9 year old and 5 year old, both had a blast.

  • I have gone to this place many times since I was a child so it was incredibly nice to be able to take my child for the first time. The exhibits are amazing and incredibly interactive for all ages. There's so much to learn here and it's fun to see the new exhibits since I visited last. Impossibly disappointed in the good selections. They used to have awesome food selections and now the selections are less but still okay food. The gift shop also always has so much great product. The staff was all very friendly and we had a great time.
  • Terrific place for the family! The kids (and adults) will love all the hands-on learning activities. So much to see and do! Great views of the Mississippi River as well. I love the incorporation of the local ecology, ecosystems interpretive exhibits. If you like science and museums, don't miss this museum! Lots of Insta-worthy moments to capture here.
