새로운 기술과 트렌드에 대해 다룬 장소입니다. 굉장히 흥미롭고 즐거웠던 장소로 기억하고 있습니다. 우리가족 모두에게 좋은 시간이었습니다. more »A place to deal with new technologies and trends. It is a very interesting and enjoyable place to remember. It was a good time for all of our family.
A very fun and educational place to take the family. Lots of interesting things to learn about and it's fun because there are a lot of hands on activities that you can do in the exhibits. Very fun and educational interactions for parents and children. There's also a cafe and gift shop which is a good thing because if you want to enjoy everything, you need to be here all day. There is a lot of really cool stuff. We visited on a field trip and were limited on time so we didn't even get to see everything, but we did enjoy everything we did get to see.
I took advantage of Bank of America's Museums on Us program and got free admission on the 1st Saturday of the month. It was a very nice education museum with both interactive displays, large exhibits devoted to a central sci/tech topic and more youth-oriented educational activities. Lots of interesting information and several uses of augmented reality to play with. Worth the visit if you have any interest in science and technology.
