Driving from New Orleans to Tulsa and used Shreveport as a pit stop. With our three year old locked up all day, this was the PERFECT stop. He burned off a thousand calories in a two hour timeframe. Take your kids here. Everything is fun...More

This is a good place for kids. My sons have gone here with their grandparents for several years. They usually go to the IMAX theater, also. Lots of hands-on exhibits that explain scientific concepts to kids. They also have a gift shop and snack shop.

Was once a very nice place to go. Many of the exhibits were broken or old and worn out. Towards the end while they were open, it wasn't worth the money. Free passes from the library for educational purposes made it worth it. Paid for...More

I have been here several times and each time I go, I find something I missed previously. My niece goes often with her school and we usually meet them there. It's a great experience for those hands-on kids that live to experiment.

For groups of 15+ the cost is $9 for Sciport only. For a combo Sciport and Imax- it is $13. General admission is $13 for Sciport and Combo is $18 for groups under 15. I hope this helps!
