We took my nephew to The science center and I think we actually enjoyed it just as much as he did. It is chock-full of fun exercises very engaging and interactive. A must do for all Connecticut residents and visitors.

Dramatic, modern building housing four floors of hands-on science activities for ages ranging from preschoolers to curious adults. I was challenged when driving south on Columbus Ave to find the parking garage hidden inside the science center building. It was easy to find the science...More

What an absolute BLAST! This museum reopens after dark with drinks for adults...in a costume party type setting for Halloween. Was an absolute blast, and I fully intend to attend it again. Really a brilliant idea, whoever came up with it.

It's a good size science center where kids will learn a lot through science exhibits. They show some 3D movies as well. Ticket and food prices are pretty high.

It probably depends where you are traveling from. I would recommend calling the Science Center and asking them.
