Great place. Hands on Science experience! Fun for adults and children alike. I took my grandsons there when they visited and I had never been before. I was pleasantly surprised at all they had to do. They had a great time.

We visit this center often with our grand kids. They always love their visit. It's been fun to watch them grow up from toddlers to teens enjoying the center. My husband enjoys it as much as the kids do.
