I took a group 8-17 & we all had a blast. It’s perfect to escape the weather & well worth the price. The line to get lunch got ridiculously long. Had we waited, it would have been at least 45 minutes just to order. There are a ton of hands on things to do, you can easily spend the entire day there. I will say, the lady at the planetarium seemed a little, um, not nice at first. Once the show began it was different. She’s really good at her job. I think it may have been a field trip day though. Definitely go check this place out. You will be happy you did
This has been a family favorite and we try to visit every time we are in town. There is something here for all ages. It is also deceitfully big. It looks much smaller than it is - you can walk through a door and find yourself in a whole other wing. When planning your trip, here are my tips: Have multiple adults to supervise if you have multiple kids. There is a lot to see and they will want to run off. Some areas are closed off and have only one exit, but a lot of the areas are easy for excited kids to wander off. Wear comfortable shoes. You can spend a long time here. Our most recent visit, we spent 3.5 hours and still didn’t see/do everything we wanted to fit in. We did buy food at the cafe - I feel like the options have significantly decreased since the pandemic, so next time we will bring our food from home - but the food we got was enjoyed. There is a planetarium that does shows, so if you want to see one, be sure to check showtimes - and sometimes the lines will fill up quickly. They also do a live show near the entrance, so check the times for that, too. They are usually big hits, although we did not make it to a show this trip. Parking is free and we did not wait for tickets although we did arrive on a Wednesday.
This is a great way to spend a day with the kids. They have food so you can take a break. There are 2 levels of activities. The tornado booth is mine and my daughter's favorite. As a teen, it was fun, but not as fun as when she was younger. They have a lot of cool climbing areas for younger kids.
Great place for kids and big kids alike. Very interactive and fun. Only reason for 4 stars is that some of the interactive stations and exhibits were closed, under renovation, or just not functioning the way they were intended. And at a cost of 70$ for admission for a family of 4 ( 2 adults, and 2 kids) its a bit of a let down.
They had an after hours art meets science exhibit. Had a fun time! Learned a lot of new things. Awesome sculpture huge wooden hand holding what looked like a metal bird. Inside were all the cool gadgets! Had a great music performance too! Guitar with old typewriter keys hitting strings. So creative! Lots of fun!
