We visited with a 2 and 6 year old, and unfortunately they wanted to spend all their time in KidSpark so we didn't really get to explore all the areas. KidSpark is neat, very play based, but we would have happily avoided it with just...More

The museum is nice and has a lot of attractions. Although this kind of museum is usually not just for kids, that was not the case for OSC. I have been to science museums more interesting. As a tourist, I would not recommend this museum...More

Hi, I believe it's $10.00 per day... there is no free parking around the area. It's totally worth it as you will be spending most of your day there. Lots of great things to see and do. I hope this was helpful...enjoy!

It depends on what kind of a person you are. If you read all the descriptions and try the stuff, I suggest between 3 to 4 hours, but if you are just one of those look and pass guys, then 1 to 2 will suffice.
