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.

We loved this place. It’s small enough to do everything in one visit but engagaing enough to keep the kids (and adults) entertained for quite a few hours. In comparison to some bigger city science/children’s museums, I found the hands on activities to be more...More
