Love adult night! This is a great time to pay attention to the displays and try all the stuff you want to try when you bring the kids. The new cafe is great too! Also the new cafeteria is awesome!

Love the outside, the building is quite spectacular when lit up at night. I've been to a work party here, the activities were fun, the food awful, the overall appearance (including bathrooms) a little grubby and off-putting. Recently I took my 7 yr old grandson....More

I thoroughly enjoyed an outing here with my daughter and 2 year old grandson. So many fascinating things to see, touch and interact with. My thought was I need to come here all by myself and explore. My number one recommended place to go in...More

We spent a couple of hours here and enjoyed watching our Grandson have fun. The exhibits are informative and interactive. I'm not as inclined to the world of science as my wife, however it is a great day's activity for those who enjoy. I imagine...More

We took our toddlers there and they loved it. There was enough space to get around the exhibits even with a stroller. The only downside was the food ordering in the cafeteria. The food was pretty good, but the fact that I had to listen...More
