Reviewed 9 December 2013

My granddaughter had a great time trying out all the hands-on activities. There were two rooms with lots to do and learn. You could easily spend an hour here. Admission is free.

“Great for kids (and Adults!)”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

This is a must go for anyone with kids. The entire park is great....
Spend 30 minutes or 3 hours...great free entertainment...
Explorium asks for donations which you will be more than happy to give! The place is alot of fun...usually have to convince the adults to leave! Lots of interactive displays...educational and fun...never had a child dislike this place!

“Something cool for the kids.”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

It's small but worth it, very cool and interesting things for the little ones, I'll said around 3 to 8 years old. You probably will be there for like an hour at the most,the good thing is that is inside the Sugar Sand Park so you can spend sometime in the park and when ever your a little bit to hot go inside to the Children Science Explorium and do some activities under the AC, they accept donations, $ 5 per person.

“Great for little ones”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

If you have kids ranging from 4 to 12 it is a great place to take them. It is not so big that they get lost and has a little bit of everything, even an IMax theater. It is getting a little old and it needs some renovations but overall I would go there.
