We took our grandchild there and we had to bribe him with ice cream to get him to leave. Great exhibits and many learning activities. Fun to watch the expression on the kids as they explore.

Have a 14 month old and was a little worried this place would be too advanced for him. They advertised a ToddlerTown, where I figured, it would have at least some things for him to enjoy. This place is great for all ages. The ToddlerTown...More

For all ages, but interesting games and scientific projects geared to the young. An area where you can even play ball, children love it.

They have stuff for everybody. I saw a soccer game being played on the grass. No family admission price. Price was a little high for the amount of time we spent there.
