Took my son here thinking that he would have fun. He was disappointed as most of the displays and activities are for younger kids(10 and younger). They do have a bunch of neat displays just nothing that really excited my 12 year old.

I brought my son here after landing and needing time to burn. Much to our surprise this was so cool! So many interactive activities, cool outdoor science playground, all activities were working - none broken. The price was so worth it. I'll definitely be back...More

Prepare to stay all day! This museum was perhaps one of the best (if not THE best) science museums we have visited! Can't say enough about the learning and fun that we had during our visit!

Used to take my grandkids here almost every weekend up until they turned 10 years old. They still like to go once in awhile, but personally I think its best for the younger ones, helps them burn off steam too.

Science City is located within Union Station and, within the Station, are several restaurants. You can easily walk out of SC to eat and come back in during the same visit.
