Our kids are 10 and 14, and they both enjoyed the museum even though some of it was geared for younger children. We spent many hours there. My son absolutely loved the Rubix Cube exhibit!

On average, guests spend about 2 to 3 hours at the science center. Those who see a planetarium show generally stay closer to 3 hours.

Yes. If only more people will support this place like sign up to be members or come more frequently I believe they will have more funding to be comparable to other science centers in the north.
