This is a small museum but everything us hands on and it is great for small kids/kids under 10. The planetarium show was the best part! It was really awesome.

Relatively small compared to other science museums I have been to (Buffalo, Syracuse) but still fun for kids. I liked the museum section that had old GE appliances. Worth a visit if you have children.

Have been to this museum twice on two separate visits in the last 30 days, and have really enjoyed both times. Both times I was there it was very quite with almost no visitors...lucky me! Lots of interesting information.
