My family and I live in the area and have never made it over to the Science Factory. We saw their Halloween event advertised and it sounded like it could be fun for the kiddos, so we gave it a shot. We won’t be going...More

I do wish they had the budget to change out exhibits more often, however, my kids really enjoy this place! When I say let's go it is all hoops and hollering with excitement! Excellent for 10 and under IMO.

This place was great. We almost didn't go due to the mixed reviews but we (grandma, two science-y parents and a 3 and 6 year old) all enjoyed it. We spent about two hours there and pet a boa constrictor, made paper airplanes and a...More

Our 2 year old was ecstatic over the take flight exhibits and LOVED the planetarium stars. It's a little dim but works well enough. All the stuff worked for us and had a good 2 hours of play before we needed lunch with the ducks...More

Brought the grandchildren here on a rainy day. The place is small, and about 15-20% of the activities were broken. No planetarium shows were being offered. So we were left with a limited number of things to do, and because they spanned such an age...More

Appropriate for young children to about age 10. Staffed by volunteers. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Planetarium show was good! Not interested in a membership, but okay for a single visit.
