At first glance, this center looks a little more like a Children's Museum but we quickly learned that there is a lot of learning to do! Your little adventurer/explorer will learn about many aspects of science including physics, biology, ecology, etc. through a ton of hands on learning activities.

This is an adventure for children up to age 12 and adults. Interaction is a must. So, bring a child, or two or three and go for it!

I have been here several times and it is perfect for little kids. Not over priced and not too large. An afternoon would be perfect and it is also by several other museums.

A totally "hands-on" experience for you and your family. Your children will simply love a visit to this location. I promise you a wonderful day with the kids here. Accessible via the boardwalk also.

I visited on a quiet Wednesday afternoon. There were people for all ages enjoying the many exhibits and play spaces from babes in arms to senior citizens with wheelchairs and walkers. There is a dedicated space for infants and pre-school children. The senior citizens seemed to enjoy trying out the Throwing Things area. I'm looking forward to seeing the new... More
