  • Thus is a very fun, affordable place to go. Take your family, they will enjoy it. There is lots of fun science exhibits for all ages. It's air conditioned and has a cafe onsite. Plenty of restrooms available. This is a good place to spend the day with your family and it isn't ever priced like a lot of places these days.
  • We went for a birthday party of one of our friend’s kids. Always a great place to visit with the kiddos. I can not say enough good things about this place or describe enough about it. One thing I can say is it is a must see with the kids.My daughter really enjoyed the planet section of the place. She has gotten all into science and there were multiple things for her to do there from planets, to anatomy, to mechanics, etc. The center is a real great place to visit!
