Here's a nice place to take a young child or grandchild for a couple of hours. Fun hands on exhibits are intriguing and educational. I enjoyed participating alongside my grandson. Not expensive and not flashy. Leave the preteens and teens at home.

If you have kids or grand kids and have run out of ideas...go to the Science Factory. Spoiler alert, once you go the kids will want to come back again and again!

The best learning is by doing. The exhibits in this facility are interactive, fun and informative. Handy location, easy access and ample parking. Modest admission fee.

My boys loved it when they were younger. It was interactive, informative, & hands-on learning about science! It gave my younger son a fascination for biology, & kept my older son focused on positive things. Over all, I'd say it's a wonderful place to take...More

Admittedly, we just ducked in here to get out of the sun at Alton Baker park. It's a small place, a humble place, but its jam-packed with stuff to do. My kid is less than 2 so he mostly played with the elaborate train track...More
