“Great time for all ages!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

We went to the Museum with our entire family, mom, dad, two kids, one teen and the grand parents and we all had an amazing time! The interactive exhibits were fun for all! We loved being a virtual T-Rex! My only complaint would be the animal habitats looked dirty and not taken care of. The fish tanks were full of algae and muck and the Bearded Dragon cage was full of poo. YUCKY! But other than that, we had a great time and learned some things in the process.

“Interesting Museum for younger children”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

We visited with an eight year old and she enjoyed the museum with all the hands on activities. I do not think it would have a lot of appeal to the preteen set and up. My favorite part was the cabinet of curiosities.

“Traveling Exhibits Make It Worth Seeing Again and Again!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

This museum is mostly dedicated to children, but they always have a traveling exhibit that holds wonders for adults also.

“Amazing!”

Love this place. So many cool things to see and do. Went with teenagers and even they enjoyed it. Very interactive and educational. Worth the $10 for sure.

“21st century dinosaurs!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

This is a really imaginative and high-tech exhibition, with animated life-sized 3D dinosaurs with vocal effects. Lots for children to interact with. We wished we could have spent more time - it could occupy an entire day.
