We had a nice visit to this science center. Lots of great exhibits. Would recommend more for older children though- most of it was a little too much for our 3 and 5 year olds. Our 7 year old enjoyed it more, and I think...More

A little pricey for a science center for sure but was a great afternoon with the family. Lots of activities for the kids and even some interesting things for adults.

There is so much to see at the Adventure Science Center. Everyone had such a good time. I do wish we were there when they had the Planetarium running.

It's fun and interesting but a little expensive. There is a lot to do but it can cost more money. Making memories.
