So my travel buddy saw this exhibit at this place. The only thing she didn't check it was over. We got in and its a weird layout and very kid friendly. Since it was towards closing we missed out on the ice carving demonstration but we got to see the end result displayed. A lot of unique exhibits for kids... More

Just what it sounds like. Big and interactive. Not the best in the country but definitely the best in the city.

Great place for kids. Number of hands on experiences and activities; however, a number of experiences cost more above entry price.

I went here on a weekday during winter break with my husband, father, 10 and 6 year old son. It was crowded but manageable to get to each exhibit. We had to wait on a short line occasionally for the interactive exhibits. The theater is mediocre, especially compared to the one at the Cradle of Aviation in Garden City which... More

Able to bring some 'immigrant friends' to this location. On a weekday, it is not at all crowded and therefore you can do anything without a long wait. While it was during the Christmas break, there were a good amount of people at many of the exhibits. This can hold the interest of mainly 7-9 year olds. Different activity areas... More

The Upper Level has a new exhibit on Science Fiction and the Sports Challenge. There are movies available in the Theater but... More

I love visiting the Hall of science, I believe it is for all ages. It is especially worth visiting when the science fair is going on in sep/oct. Including exploring some new technologies, you can go explore the Hall of Science as well.

What a great place for kids to discover the mysteries of science interactively! Grownups can learn a thing or two as well. The facility houses kid-friendly exhibits which translate scientific principles into fun activities which motivate involvement to deliver a message. Kids smiling everywhere, pulling their friends from one exhibit to the next, sharing the miracles they've each discovered. Group... More
