Took 2 10 year old boys, they really enjoyed it. Lots of things to learn and experience. A few items weren't working but not enough to make a negative impact. Spent about 2 hours and we did everything. It was a great morning spent learning.

Pretty high cost for very little to do. Several things were out or broken the day we were there as well. Really need to invest in a food area. Plus side, very few people there so my children had the run of the place.More

Grandson's went into sensory overload! They were engaged for hours. It was a positive learning experience without the pain. Hands-on activities from the time we entered until I dragged them out. They want to return!

This science center is extremely good. It gives children/adults the opportunity to be hands on, which gives a much greater understanding of science. This could, hopefully, point young folks in the direction of science, which would help us all in the future.More
