  • It was good. For me it was very interesting. Theres a little park outside but you had to get in the building to get to the park. The only problem that I had was there was a activity that has you launch a paper rocket at some piece of paper. It was fine but if you missed (which was common) some child that was walking in the area of the paper would get hit. I almost got hit twice. But in general this place is good. Would recommend you to go here.
  • For my four year old it was pretty good, a decent half day trip. Planetarium was cool. But growing up here I remember when this place was awesome. So, I guess if I had never been back then it'd probably be rated better, but I know what this place was and could be, so it makes me kind of sad. But a decent value for the money and certainly worth a stop once.
