Very good place to take a young child. Very educational and safe environment. We love it! Our child is 3 years old and she didn't want to leave. We are planning to go back very soon.

I've been to a lot of museums and this one was just ok. They did have a nice section where you could touch some of the small animals there. The museum was pretty empty when i went, but then it was a Tuesday morning.

For groups of 15+ the cost is $9 for Sciport only. For a combo Sciport and Imax- it is $13. General admission is $13 for Sciport and Combo is $18 for groups under 15. I hope this helps!
