this place needs a major donation to do serious updating an renovations. the backyard even had some hazards - had to keep a close eye on my toddler. it was a fun place to spend about 90 minutes. staff was very welcoming.

We went to Exploirt with friends. Its fun for little children. There is a nice lawn area as well. Do check in advance what hours the museum is open on their web site.

Interesting place to stop and visit. I rather the SF Exploratory but a very nice place to go. Great place to visit.

This is a fun little museum! Your child will like the low-key atmosphere and the chance to try some experiments and learn a bit about science.

This was a fun spot to visit but very much for young families. The title of the exhibit online was about Art and Science so I thought I'd give it a try. Went there with my 19 yr. old daughter. A little on the young...More

I'm a native Davisite and I grew up visiting the Explorit Science Center. This is a great place to learn and experience science hands-on. The exhibits rotate and they oftentimes have live animals that kids can handle. All around, this is a worthwhile afternoon outing.

This place is really hands-on because they use familiar stuff for investigations or experiments. It's the sort of place where you and your kids will pick up ideas for things you can start - or continue - at home. It's small but there's lots to...More

A few other moms and I took our Kindergarteners there. They had fun but the place is smaller than expected and we didn't stay very long. Definitely educational and it won't take up your whole day.
