This would have been a great place to take teens and preteens, I think. A lot of fun exhibits on science-related topics such as the human body, bodily functions, and nanotechnology. It was very easy to get through in an hour and a half, though,...More

With 4-hours to spare, we visited on a Sunday morning. Unless you live in the immediate area and visit often, the Gen Adminission tickets are sufficient to keep the young ones busy (5-10). We bought tickets for the Shark event, pretty lame to us, at...More

My wife and I went here on a Thursday and it was jam packed with kids on field trips. They were unruly (as kids in mob form will be) and I feel the staff could have helped direct a little more. Our 15 month old...More

Had a great time at the AZ Science Center. It was nice to see the hordes of children enjoying the place. The Planet Shark exhibit was fantastic, as was the planetarium, the Flight of the Butterflies documentary, and all the other exhibits I got to...More

A great spot for kids or adults. There is always a 'special area' for an additional fee, it is not always worth it so before you buy the extra access take a peek inside to ensure you are interested. Plenty to see and do. Great...More

Can you take your own food and eat there? If you just want to go to the Planetarium do you have to buy a ticket for the general admission? What's the earliest I can enter?

No free parking but there is a parking garage adjacent to museum. Bring in your ticket and they will redeem a portion of the cost. I think you only end up paying five dollars versus the hourly rate the garage charges. Hope... More
