Mindport is an amazing hands on museum where you learn about tornadoes, water pressure, magnetism and so, so much more! It is fun for kids as young as 3 and older then 70.

$2.00 admission and will occupy the kids for anywhere between 30 minutes to two hours. Depends on how much time they spend on each exhibit. Great for grown ups too! (You'll have to figure out how some things work and explain them!)

Mindport is stimulating for all ages. Took a friend's 13 year old son and he was occupied for almost 4 hours. I brought a good book since Mindport offers nice seating areas for those who want to sit for awhile

Kinetic art, hands on activities, audible experiments, optical illusions - very neat place and well worth the small entrance fee.

This was definitely one of the neatest "museums" that I have been to!! Lots of hands-on things to try and lots of look at. Some of the most unique items/displays!

Awesome indoor activity! Very cool interactive exhibits to play with and make you think! Fun for young children and parents and probably everything in between...

This is a place to spend a half hour to an hour. Well worth the $2 entrance fee. Beautiful hand made wood curiosities and gizmos that are hands-on explorations of some science, music or mechanical concept. There are binders with more detailed info on the...More
