We brought our niece and nephew here for a nice afternoon activity and we had way more fun than we expected! There are tons of things for kids and for adult to do. We adults enjoyed ourselves as much as the kids! We enjoyed the music/noise room, the planetarium, and the live animals. Really, all of the exhibits were great.... More

This is a great place to hang out with the kids. Always lots to learn. The have special exhibits from time to time, and this is a fun time to re-explore. We also like to go at Christmas to take pics with Santa and make crafts and reindeer food. Awesome staff.

We spent the morning at SciWorks when we visited Winston Salem. The kids had a great time in the Physics Work area. The Sounds Work area is also a lot of fun but can get REALLY loud. Great place to take kids to hang out and play.

When the grandchildren visit, they always want to go back. There is much to see and do. They really like the pneumatic chair and the planetarium.

Sic Works is a great museum to take the kids. We took our grand kids, 2 and 5 years old. They loved it. We spent the whole day there. Great museum for kids of all ages. They also have a nice planetarium

For years on our way to the beach we've passed by the SciWorks sign. This year we finally had the chance to come to SciWorks and see what we've been missing. The kids enjoyed all the physics experiments they could do. They also enjoyed the laser show in the planetarium, even though the music was a bit dated. I thought... More

Very much enjoyed this museum. In addition to the hands on exhibits, they had a nice planetarium. We saw both an astronomy show, and most surprisingly a laser show. Nice treat! I gave this 5 stars based on the setting, a medium sized unsophisticated city. No you can't compare it to Grifith park in San Francisco or the Boston Museum... More
