$2.00 admission and will occupy the kids for anywhere between 30 minutes to two hours. Depends on how much time they spend on each exhibit. Great for grown ups too! (You'll have to figure out how some things work and explain them!)

Mindport is stimulating for all ages. Took a friend's 13 year old son and he was occupied for almost 4 hours. I brought a good book since Mindport offers nice seating areas for those who want to sit for awhile

Kinetic art, hands on activities, audible experiments, optical illusions - very neat place and well worth the small entrance fee.

Awesome indoor activity! Very cool interactive exhibits to play with and make you think! Fun for young children and parents and probably everything in between...

This is a place to spend a half hour to an hour. Well worth the $2 entrance fee. Beautiful hand made wood curiosities and gizmos that are hands-on explorations of some science, music or mechanical concept. There are binders with more detailed info on the...More

This is a must see when you go to Bellingham. My kids (8 and 10) spent 2 hours exploring and trying their exhibits. The place is a little small but you will be amazed you by the different things on display. Fee is only $2...More
