Children of all ages will be engaged at this place. There is a lot to do. You would have to stay ALL day in order to do everything. Very reasonably priced so just go back a few times =0)

This is a first-rate science center that could match any large city science center. There are lots of hands-on things to do for the whole family, including grandparents. So allow lots of time to explore and also watch live demonstrations.

Every time we visit there are always a lot of exhibits that have not been taken care of and broken. The planets exhibit upstairs is very cool, but beyond that we won't spend the money to go back.

I wasn't expecting too much from Science Central. I anticipated a smaller museum with some hands on activities and that was what was delivered. As usual for some older museums, some of the exhibits need some care and upgrades. But overall we are glad we...More

In my opinion, the Science Central might not have enough material to spark their interest for age group 14+. It would be a good place for a pit stop in Fort Wayne if you just want to give it a visit.
