First, the young person working the entry booth didn't seem knowledgeable or helpful. Second, when you walk in, it's a little confusing and not well laid out. There are wide open spaces (perhaps for school groups) and no direction where to go first. It's not...More

We decided to go check out the Sci-tech Discovery and found it to be for very young children. If you have very young children they will find this place entertaining and older kids not so much.

My kids ages 7, 9 and 12 enjoyed themselves playing with all the interactive exhibits for about an hour and a half. There's lots of different stations with different things to do. It kind of is two different rooms and it was fairly easy to...More

The perfect day for our 5 year old grandson (probably good for up to 8 years). Lots of hands on attractions all with an educational bias. We arrived at 11.00 and left at 16.45. The only downside is that there is no coffee shop/cafe so...More

We took our 6 year old here. Coming from a much larger city I was expecting more. It is a very small science center with few exhibits. While my little one enjoyed it I would not invest in a membership. Not enough there to do...More

I have been to Sci-Tech two times with my kids. It is interesting and hands on and some of the traveling exhibits are great but save your money and visit one of the larger Science museums in the area. The Perot, the TI museum in...More
