We had an excellent time at this museum. The kids really enjoyed all of the activities, and the adults got to have some fun too! We made paper airplanes fly through hoops and we got to spin around on a stool and make ourselves move with a bicycle wheel. We lifted ourselves up with a rope lever. The museum was a great way to spend an afternoon for all.

I go to Shreveport about every three months to see my granddaughter and I bought a season pass to Sci-Port....admits four people each visit. She loves going there and they seem to have at least one new exhibit every time we go. Sci-Port is hands on for kids. The lego exhibit has an area with tables and chairs where the kids can build with legos. There were also castles in cases that had been built by master lego builders which allowed the kids to see what can be built. The kids can dig in sand to form a channel that will allow little plastic boats to float from one end of a water exhibit to another. There is a lock system that shows kids how ships can travel from higher water to lower water. That is just a few of her favorites...there are too many to list. She loves going to Sci-Port, it is educational, and it is hands on. It is money well spent.

If you live in the area they do have summer camps for the kids. They also have an IMAX there and I believe they do birthday parties. Enjoy!

I could have stayed & set up the entire domino display. It looked like so much fun but my hubby was not into sitting at one display that long.

I absolutely loved it. TONS of things to see and do. My wife and I often took turns watching our son so that we could do the activities! I would go back with the family, with my wife, or even alone! Doing everything in there can easily take up the greater part of a day!

This science museum is full of fun, hands-on exhibits for all ages. It is entertaining and educational. They also have an IMAX theater that everyone should experience at least once. The museum also hosts renowned one-of-a-kind traveling exhibits that shouldn't be missed.
