Not a good place to visit if you don't have kids. A lot of the attractions didn't work. I thought it was a waste of time and money.

We are members and appreciate what the museum brings to the city. We're excited about the new POP children's museum (wish it was included in the membership, but it's only $4 for Sci-port members, and you can get a membership to POP). My big kids...More

Very good place to take a young child. Very educational and safe environment. We love it! Our child is 3 years old and she didn't want to leave. We are planning to go back very soon.

Very much enjoyed the visit!! So many activities that were entertaining and educational. Loved the astronomy presentations. Could have spent much longer than the two hours we were there.

I've been to a lot of museums and this one was just ok. They did have a nice section where you could touch some of the small animals there. The museum was pretty empty when i went, but then it was a Tuesday morning.

For groups of 15+ the cost is $9 for Sciport only. For a combo Sciport and Imax- it is $13. General admission is $13 for Sciport and Combo is $18 for groups under 15. I hope this helps!
