“Perfect for a rainy day in the Fort!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

This past Saturday I took my nephews (ages 7 and 2) to Science Central and we all enjoyed ourselves! There were a lot of people there, but it didn't hinder us having a good time, there are SO many activities to keep everyones attention! I was afraid with the age difference we'd have a problem, but i was pleasantly surprised! There is an area just for 7 & under, which worked out great, then we worked our way from top to bottom and checked out all of the other stuff. A really fun time, and I can't wait to get back. Sometime my husband and I are going to go by ourselves too, to check stuff out on our own! Quite a win for a rainy cold day!

“Just ok!”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 via mobile

This is a really cool lookin building from the outside. The inside is starting to become rundown. Several of the exhibits are In Need of repair or dirty. Parents in the kiddie area seem to let their children run wild and no staff keeps it under control. The slide has restrictions that don't allow most kids to go down and it is not dangerous at all. My 10 year old was too small!! There was a cool show about weather and the price is good.

“Most of it is geared towards older kids but my 2yo twins still enjoyed it!”
Reviewed 13 August 2013 via mobile

We went with family members and children ranging from 22 mos-4yrs. They enjoyed the section for smaller children and a few other areas. Traveler tip: Be sure to take an extra shirt for smaller children. My boys couldn't stay out of the water table and refused to wear the smocks so we had to buy extra tshirts there.
