  • Visited with kindergarten child. Variety of interactive displays and experiments. Well arranged to allow space for children and parents to share experiences.  more »
  • Our 3 year old absolutely loves it here, and our 1.5 year old likes it a lot to. Great place to encourage STEM learning  more »
  • This is a wonderful place to take children of all ages, including adults! The hands-on experiences at various stations are fun while also being educational. You could easily spend several hours here and be so engrossed in the experience that you lose track of time. There is ample parking and usually an admission charge. They have a small gift shop; we were looking for a teeshirt for our grandson but they did not have any.
  • An awesome place to take your child to learn and play. We have a family membership and go around once a week and my son still loves going. Tons of science, technology, engineering and math to work on.
