“Musical Tesla Coils & a Wall that Plays Music!!!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Two Tesla coils are set up to actually play music, and they take requests! I recommend you accept the complimentary ear plugs as the coils have good sound, but it only comes out at one volume, LOUD. A great display and the world's only musical Tesla coils.

There is also a wall with carved pieces of wood arranged in an abstract mosaic. Each piece is stained a different color, and when touched they each make a different sound. Kids of ALL ages will love playing the wall.

“Not as big, but not as pricey either”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

So they're not as big and flashy as the children's museums in big cities (and we've been to several, all over the country). They're also not nearly as expensive, and children can hardly tell the difference. My kids didn't get bored there, and I didn't either!

“This place is about kid intrest”
Reviewed 15 March 2013 via mobile

So the parentay find it a little boring but the kids will have a nice time getting out and discovering a few things. If you wait for special exhibits to come through that is the best time to visit. It is not anything conoared to Dallas or Little Rock discovery centers but makes for a nice stop for the kids. Different centers and little ones will love it.
