There is so much to see and do here. My grandsons love to come here and check out the exhibits and try out new things. They have a good mix of different themes and topics, and cover a lot of territory, especially in the scientific and historic realms. Depending on the number of visitors, things can get a bit hectic... More

Really great time for the kids. There were plenty of things for them to do. They're were only two exhibits closed for remodels. The bank vault is pretty cool to look at for the adults, if you've never seen one. The guy who was overseeing the robotics should really calm down though. He is pretty short with people, and that's... More

Took granddaughter today for something to do since it was a bit hot for the park. She is almost five and had a fabulous time! A lot for kids to do and touch and play with. I parked at a meter with two hour limit thinking we would be back in about an hour and a half. Got back more... More

This was a nice local surprise! Our son loves mechanical toys and this did not disappoint. The Cessna cockpit was full of knobs and buttons for him to manipulate and he really enjoyed the train exhibit upstairs! We will be going back!

Good place to while away some time with little kids. Parking meters on street for 2 hrs only! Go to the garage if staying longer.

There was so much for my kids to do . . . We started bringing lunch with us. Even from 1015-115. We couldn't get through everything. My boys loved discovery station. Current favorites are the car race track and the dinosaur sand box. We will be back soon. Keep up the great work guys

When I called I was able to speak directly to the museum curator Brittany! She was very accommodating. I called a week out from the birthday party I had scheduled and they even stayed open late to make the museum available to us. They had all the things my 8 year old son and his friends love including Lego robotics,... More
