We had kids from 3-12 yo and they all had a nice time. Plenty to do. The teacher discount brought the price down to $8 and the senior citizen discount is $10.

Lots of hands-on fun for young children. We were there during Spring Break (March) and it was busy but not crowded. An enjoyable afternoon out of the heat.

Loved this attraction. Since most of the place is indoors, its a great place to get out of the heat, or dodge the rain. Tons of fun for the whole family with a lot of interesting exhibits, both indoor and outdoor.

I agree a 16 year old may be on the edge but there are some exhibits I believe would be still of interest to a 16 year old
