Great way to play with your grandchildren (or children). Whether it's playing on police, fire, and EMT equipment, discovering light and electricity or building structures, watching the train or shooting scarfs and ball from the adjustable pneumatic tubes, they'll have a great time and beg to return.

We stopped here first as we came into Tucson for a mini vacation. The kids loved it and by the time we went back outside, it was comfortable enough to play on the outside xylophones. Very fun stop and wore them out with all the things to do!

We went when our grandchildren were young. They had a great show of different dinasours displayed three to move. Very realistic to see and quite exciting. I think they change their format now and then. They have other things for the children to do. We had a super time there.

The museum has some interesting and stimulating exhibits. It is best for kids under 10 in my opinion.

The kids will really enjoy this educational experience! Many exhibits to stimulate their minds. The price of admission was well worth it.
