Took my 10 & 11 year-old niece & nephew. They were just on the cusp of being too old... but still enjoyed it VERY much. Lots of cool innovative stuff to do & have fun with. Especially if you like to be goofy.

Great spot to bring kids who can share activities with parents or other kids. All manner of learning activities that appeal to kids make up the exhibits. Every exhibit requires interaction.
