Didn't think it was very organized, kids running all over, some activities didn't work. We took our 9 year old granddaughter and she was disappointed which made us disappointed.

Went with 7 and 5 yr olds and we had a delightful day! Lots to do, especially if you help the kids--and might learn something in the process! Once you've done everything, you can do favorites again. Helpful and polite employees.

Visited with my eleven year old. We spent around 4 hours here going through all of the "mess kits" doing experiments. She loved it and would go back again since they change their kits often.

What a great concept. Any child, and adults for that matter, can go here for a couple hours of fun and science!! Hands on exhibits that keep the kids engaged while having fun and learning.

My 8 and 10 year olds love this place. I've seen older kids have fun. As an adult, I really enjoy this place. If they enjoy hands on learning and exploring, they'd love it.
