Place was very nicely done, staff friendly, and exhibits fun and interesting. The only thing that can be improved on is the price to get in. $15 per person is very expensive for the size venue this is (rather on the smaller side).

I went down to the center with my family with high expectations based on the information collected before our visit. My 8 year old nephew said the place was "boring" and I never thought I would have agreed. Although "boring" isn't how I will describe it. First, it's very small so I would recommend visiting with some foresight on how... More

We took my daughter and her friend here for her 12th birthday. The weather was cold and snowing so it was a wonderful indoor activity. It was a great experience for science enthusiasts of all ages. Even my husband and I had fun exploring the multitude of "hands-on" exhibits. It was hard to leave this place without both having fun... More

Our grandkids just loved the place with so much for them to do and it was also a learning experience for them. Give yourself about 4 hours to see most everything and watch the amazement in your children's faces.

Had a good time there with family. My niece who was with me has a membership. She takes her 2 yr d and 6 yr old there a lot. It was very informative.

All the exhibits seemed incomplete, facility has a dreary feel to it particularly for something heard towards children. I'll say that the staff was attentive to the children but not enthused. Our group was admitted for free because my daughter had a pass.. I felt for the people that were charged the full price of $13 per person.. even $13... More

Great place to take the kids with such a wide range of activities to keep the youngest to the oldest kid (or kid at heart) entertained and learning! We ended up with a season pass and has been great to go several times throughout the year. Love the season pass has an "extended family" option allowing for us to take... More

Great place for kids to learn about various science issues, mechanical engineering issues, and natural science. Current "Grossology" exhibit about bodily functions not for the light hearted! This would get 5 stars but some on the exhibits were not working.

I brought my nephew to the Da Vinci Center hoping for some really fun and engaging activities. I would have liked to see more unique programming and displays. We did not stay for very long, as we got through everything fairly quickly.

This was a stop on the way home while on vacation and we're glad we made it. There were lots of hands on exhibits for the kids.
