Fun Place, good time.

Good place for kids and adults to visit. A wide range of exhibits and interaction. Some of the features change from month to month. Low price and a good time for all.

We went as a part of a class field trip with our son. There was so much to see and do here. Lots of interesting science exhibits for kids to have hands on learning. You will need several hours to go through the museum completely. Highly recommend for young kids!

We love Science Central and can recommend the yearly membership. Also included in the membership are many other science centers. We visit Science Central for extra classes that are available through the week and the summer camps.

Science Central was built with young kids in mind. They can touch, operate & view many, many science projects themselves. This is a very kid friendly place to go for their enjoyment.

This is a great hands-on experience good for families and kids ranging from young ages to young adults. It is a big facility with a LOT of different exhibits, including a traveling exhibit room and a VERY nice earth Science on a Sphere exhibit.

Mostly a time killer for the younger children. Can spend a couple of hours then seems to lose interest. One to two visits while the kids are young is enough!

Took our 3 and 7 year old grandchildren there over spring break. While the younger children play area was great, the 7 year old was a little young for many of the attractions.
