  • Perfect place for a rainy day, or any day for that matter, with the kids. Took a group of preservice teachers so they could see what is available for them with their classes. What a great educational resource. Well done exhibits. Knowledgeable staff. Worth it!
  • Pretty interesting place quite a bit to do. Definitely fills half a day, but we could have stayed longer if time allowed us to. Lots of interactive educational opportunities/centers. Most of them we had seen in other science centers/children's museums around the country. Definitely the most original and coolest room for us was the 5 senses. We loved not only the information for each of the five senses, but how they had it hooked up to the brain, so it could light up the corresponding section. We thought with how much admission was it was a shame many displays were showing their age. It definitely could use a spruce up. Overall, It was a great day though.
