Favorite part was the planetarium. Some of the activities were broke or did not work, but that's pretty much anywhere. Overall had a good time and will likely come back.

Kids enjoyed the hands on, and the many things to see and play with. The place is clean and friendly, and help is available if you need it, except when they are busy. Don't go there when you see a lot of buses, it's a...More

Whenever I have taken my children or go with school groups, the children just run from one activity to another. They do not take the time to interact and learn something. Some adult thought this was a good idea and received some grant money.

Sciworks is a great place to let kids explore and learn at their own pace. It's worth getting an annual pass if you can return. Only disappointment was that we missed the last planetarium show when we went at 3:30 pm. This seems early for...More

While your children might enjoy the science exhibits, this company has no right to have donkeys, sheep and goats living in a deplorable environment. The donkeys and goats were severely malnourished and heat exhausted in 100 degree weather. There was nothing for the goats to...More
