I always enjoy the exhibits here. I especially like to go to the IMAX theatre. I always learn something new when I visit.

The yearly family pass, that I purchased for my daughter when she was younger, was the best investment. It included unlimited visits to the Science Spectrum, but not IMAX. We went every week and always had fun. There is always something to interest a child and so many fun things to do.

Totally well done!! and the exhibits are rock solid, can take the abuse of kids and... More

Conveniently located on the south loop, this is a favorite stop for locals as well as visitors from elsewhere. All kinds of interactive displays and a wide range of interests.
