Spend a couple of hours or the whole day at this hands-on museum that has something exciting for everyone. Touch a lizard, watch chickens hatching, see lightning being created and enjoy hundreds of other exhibits, where you can't help but learn something new about science and technology. Hold onto the edge of your seat at the IMAX movie theater, which costs extra.

My kids all loved this museum. So many things to see. I will say as a parent it seems a little dated now but the kids loved it. If you get to see the Planetarium or IMAX show they are welll done.

The kids loved all the technology and learning about how electricity was made and how volcanoes are formed. They really loved the dinosaur displays, the school house and the space station.

The Museum was interesting. It clearly identified all facets of Science. We took the Duck Tour with Prf. Quack Einstein and Joseph, they are informative and funny. The food court is nice too. There was all an older gentleman working in the museum named Robert....More
