This was great and enjoyable for the kids. The family enjoyed. You can learn a lot there. It seems mostly self guided and easy to follow along. Family should definitely visit with young children and this could help them gain some scientific knowledge.

Amazing place! We stopped here while on vacation and our children ages 3 to 11 all had a great time. There is a ton of hands on stuff. And there is so much to do. Everything you see has information or something to engage in. The employees were also very kind and helpful. Everything was also very clean! The gift shop was pretty big but was relatively empty.

Very cool place. Get there early to fully enjoy everything and not feel rushed. The kid's zone was great. You may want to bring extra clothes because of the water station. The kids love that area. You'll do a good amount of walking wear comfortable shoes. Everyone over two who hasn't been vaccinated needs to wear a mask. Reserve a time slot online prior to going. Very interactive place. I'd suggest bring water.

Alot of stuff to do for all ages. 3 different floors and only one elevator. Mask are required at all times no matter what for ages 2 and above. The little kid section was fun and our little. They have some small animals and water creatures to look at and touch. The second floor has tons on interactive stuff, fun for the whole family.

This place is super fun for kids of all ages (and parents too). Id say it takes about 3 hours to do everything at a nice pace. My younger kids really like the Science at The Stage shows and the interactive exhibits upstairs.
