I love the science centre as a an attraction. But the crowds can be a little overwhelming. Start your tour early, if you can. Go right to the top floor and work your way down. That way you are at least going against the traffic....More

Visited with my son, daughter in law and grandchildren (2 and 4). What a great dayout it was - and I didn't see all of it, by any means. It's a big place, which means there's an attractive sense of spaciousness in the different galleries....More

This is a full day event to plan. It is a large building that needs a full day to explore. Learning and fun best describe the days activities.

Hi, I believe it's $10.00 per day... there is no free parking around the area. It's totally worth it as you will be spending most of your day there. Lots of great things to see and do. I hope this was helpful...enjoy!

It depends on what kind of a person you are. If you read all the descriptions and try the stuff, I suggest between 3 to 4 hours, but if you are just one of those look and pass guys, then 1 to 2 will suffice.
