  • Went for the first time today and had so much fun. My favorite thing about today was Greg who shared so much knowledge with us on various things that kept us intrigued and engaged! I highly reccomend going and listening to what all he has to say. He definitely made today's learning fun and exciting.
  • I took my 5-year-old for a day of fun since the weather was cold and rainy. The people working at the front desk were so friendly and helpful. The admission seemed a little bit pricey; it was $24 for me and my son. But perhaps a membership would be well worth the price. We spent most of our time upstairs in the little play town. It was super clean and well-maintained. There were comfortable benches and couches to sit on while you watch your child play. We make Sci-port a must-do every time we visit the Shreveport area.
