This is a tour on your own and at your pace museum. It had interesting, interactive and educational exhibits for kids of all ages. Would recommend to go when it's not so busy if you have a big party.

Stopped here because the weather was very nice. I was surprised and big it was. It is a great hands on place. If you are into science this is a must stop!

The Exploratory is full of fun hands on science displays. It has a "space station" feel to it, along with some robotic hosts. It is a nice change of pace from all of the water based attractions. If you child is interested in science, they...More

This was a fun experience. You can really spend as much or as little time here as you'd like. You can try to solve each puzzle or skip though and only try a few. I think this would be best for ages 5+. There are...More

It was a colder day, so instead of going to the waterpark, we checked out this science center. So much to do and so many cool exhibits. We spent a good 3 hours here and the kids had a blast.

Didn't know what to expect, but had discounted admission and decided to check it out. WE LOVED IT! Yes, it was busy with kids running everywhere, but we were in no hurry and simply waited our turn. At first, our teenagers were a bit reserved...More

We went when the Mir space station was exhibited. Unfortunately it was at the end of the tour so we had to walk through everything to get there. Still our son enjoyed the interactive exhibits. I found the Mir module interesting but felt that it...More

We remember this as Robot World. There are a few robots remaining, but the focus is hands on science activities. My 15 yr old niece came with us for her first time. She really enjoyed herself here. It was a great activity on a rainy...More
