This is a great place to visit!! So many fun things to do, and all hands on. I love the machine with the bird sounds! Very wheelchair friendly too.

This is a beautifully done center with much to learn and see. The location is gorgeous and is even appropriate for meetings and gatherings outside of field trips and educational outings. They did a great job building it. As a teacher it is one of my favorite field trips.

As 2 seniors looking for something to do in Vancouver till the rain stopped, we wandered into this wonderful educational resource center. It's obviously intended primarily for school groups and families, but as retired teachers, we found enough to keep our old selves entertained for over an hour! There are a lot of hands-on activities, like an area filled with... More

We had heard about this as a great outing for children and we took our 2nd through 6th grade grandchildren. Kind of a surprise as it is well done, and close to the Columbia River and trails by the river. Went back to run one of the trails. Helpful brochures and info, including park maps of the area.

My 2.5 year old and I explored this place on a rainy morning. They have a fun area for hands on learning, for kids under 4, and my daughter's favorite- fish, frogs, and a bicycle to ride on. Just a good, free place to go.

My son and I went here for his home-school science curricculum. He loved it. We both learned quite a bit about the city water system, and how it affects our lives. Will definitely be back next year.
