This is an excellent exhibit on the human body and how its components function. The descriptions were brief and held my attention span yet enlarged my understanding of how things work. It included some hands on that appeal to the young and old, and made me wish we had something like this in our small town. The real bonus was the traveling exhibit on Pompeii , Italy, that we found totally fascinating, as the artifacts were ones we never saw in our tour of the ruins of Pompeii.

A great experience. All the displays were informative and gave a real experience to life at that time. The devastation in such a short period of time is unbelievable. We visited Pompeii and the exhibit is great to share with families.

I visited the science center after hours to view the Pompeii exhibit I found it well organized and very informative. after hours there were very few visitors which made my visit very enjoyable. I was able to take my time and enjoy each moment as were learned about the devastation that occurred that 24 hours when mount vesuvius erupted.

The exhibit was very well put together. I had visited Pompeii, Italy in 2017. This exhibit had actual pieces of artifacts from the city and demonstrated the culture of the time.
