We visited the center with out of town visitors that included 3 teenagers. Everyone was thoroughly entertained. The center has both high tech and low tech exhibits and animals. Everyone really enjoyed it. Easy parking, friendly staff, and reasonable priced.

We have been to the science center on multiple occasions, and continue to learn new things every time we go. A melding together of aquarium, zoo, static scientific exhibits and learning centers. Great for people of all ages, but especially great for kids.
