We saw the Star Trek exhibit. It was awesome. We ate in the cafeteria. There are a lot of choices, pizza, mexican, and burgers. Plan on spending the day. There is so much to see.

We took our two grandsons for our annual pre-Presidents' Day excursion and truthfully, I was very disappointed. Many of the exhibits were closed for refurbishing and it only took us 2 hours to visit every section. The dinosaur exhibit is always our favorite and it...More

Great for ages 4 to 10. Bring large bag to carry extra items and snacks as the food is expensive. Every president day they are free. Lot to do and lot of play areas for young children.

We visit the museum last year and purchased a membership. This trip was to celebrate several birthdays in the family. After almost a whole day the kids were still exploring the place. The only knock is the food court. Food was so so and it...More

Our kids really enjoy this place. It really is a high quality museum compared to others we have visited. My only problem is the kids discount is so small. The price for a young child should be more. I would definitely recommend this for kids.

this place needs more for teens and less for children. This place needs more exibets I think that it is best to go around the holidays, needs more for teens and older kids.

We started taking our daughter here when she was 9 months old and we were HUGE fans for years (especially of play scape! Access to play scape ends when the kiddos turn 6, which was very sad). I just recently took my 8 1/2 year...More

We love this museum so much. We live 3hrs away- but have a membership because our kids love it so much. Our 12 year old watches for upcoming events to make the trip 😊

So much fun. Lots to offer. Exhausted by the end of our day. Missed getting to explore some of the outdoor activities and experiences but will definitely take advantage next time. Wish a membership was just a little cheaper.

Very nice childrens museum even for older adults. Was at a private party so not sure about admission cost. Very large selection of exhibits. Recommend using the parking garage, museum is not in the best part of town.

I believe they might like 1.5 floor of the total 4 floors. So if they are going with smaller kids, their day might pass. But just teens might be bored.
