I was really excited to go to a science center hoping to learn some amazing things. This place really has nothing going for it. We spent about three hours there and all I wanted to do was leave. Don't waste your time.

Fun for adults but built especially for the kids. The science covers every subject and gives you a better idea of how things work. Unfortunately a lot of things are reserved for groups from schools so individual parties can't participate in those. However, there is...More
