My kids loved the place - they were touching and playing and exploring everything the place had to offer. They loved the space exhibit and the oil industry exploration exhibits.

A modern attraction tucked away up a mall. It took me three hours to work my way and does jump from a child's level of explanation to more complex topics. Plenty of things to read and do. Obviously as a function of the national oil...More
