We took two children (6 and 13) to this museum and it was a big hit with them. The most fun was had in a courtyard with hundreds of lightweight plastic balls and a variety of ways of pushing, shoving, blasting and blowing them about using the force of water. This area was clearly intended for siphoning off some youthful exuberance before letting the youngsters loose among the "quieter" exhibits. As far as I could tell, these were also aimed at visitors of teenage and under; nothing wrong with that unless you're from Trades Descriptions and would prefer to augment the Center's name with "Youth" or a similar clue...
Our two loved the Body department (especially walking through a digestive system with suitable sound effects); the young teenager enjoyed the room covering electricity and magnetism, whilst the building and genetics (!) displays occupied the six-year-old - luckily a very competent reader - for ages. Three hours was all we could take of the constant onslaught of school-age energy provided by several buses full of enthusiastic students.
Highly recommended, therefore, for families but if you prefer your museums peaceful and adult-focused, give this one a miss. Downgraded to "Average" because it cost nearly $80 for two adults, one senior and two children for basic, no-extras tickets.
