ScienceWorks with it's ever changing displays provides a fun and educational place for kids (and kids-at-heart) to explore. From the area for Under-5s to cool exhibits that excite many adults, there's something for everyone. It's smaller than big city hands-on museums but still provides plenty...More

This multi-exhibit museum is sure to be a hit for all ages. There are bubbles, rockets, so much hands-on, and the place is perfect. Even teens will have fun for a few minutes.

Lots of hands-on stations for older kids to learn scientific theories. Much to learn even for adults. There is a 300 square feet area to make and play with huge soap bubbles. Great place for family to spend the day.

My adult daughter and I had a great time with all the interactive exhibits here. A great place for adults and especially would be so for kids. Several special areas reserved just for youngsters.

Science Works is a very fun place not just for children but also for adults. The exhibits are hands-on including "DaVinci's Garage" where you can make things and a bubble room where you can encase yourself in a bubble. The special exhibits about pteroosaurs taught...More
