  • We love this space so much. Kids love to touch and poke everything and there's so much to touch here! The 80s arcade is a favorite (even for us adults), and I love to allow my kids the freedom to explore different technologies at their own pace. Everything from coding to spacial reasoning to technology in art is here. And they add new exhibits every few months. It's an added bonus that they have a parking lot and have a space for eating lunch.
  • This computer museum is amazing. It contains a large variety of computers from giant, old tape drives, to modern robots that are controlled by remote. Lots of computers are hands-on, like an old Atari system connected to an old 80s TV, a self driving car, and old PCs with games you can play on floppy discs. They also have an 80s style arcade with free tokens. There is a small cafe, and overall the museum is very clean and educational.
