I like this place because it is not crowded and keeps kids 1-10 years of age or even a little older occupied for 2 hours without much headache for the parents. All the rooms are well designed and interactive and the planetarium show is great....More

Went here to view an art exhibit and was pleasantly surprised. I had visions of it being strictly for young children but there is something for everyone. I plan to go back.

I loved my first visit here today. It was sponsored by Pitney Bowes (thank you), so it was super busy, but we had a blast. The exhibits are awesome and very interactive so children can get some energy out. We spent more than 2 hours...More

It is set up for children, however, me and my adult friend spent over 2 hours there. I recommend not going to the narrated planetarium show as it was not very dynamic. The other show is better and suited for adults, teens or... More

Yes. I recommend going to the shows that are not narrated as it was not as interesting as the pre-recorded show.
