I do wish they had the budget to change out exhibits more often, however, my kids really enjoy this place! When I say let's go it is all hoops and hollering with excitement! Excellent for 10 and under IMO.

Brought the grandchildren here on a rainy day. The place is small, and about 15-20% of the activities were broken. No planetarium shows were being offered. So we were left with a limited number of things to do, and because they spanned such an age...More

Appropriate for young children to about age 10. Staffed by volunteers. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Planetarium show was good! Not interested in a membership, but okay for a single visit.

The Science Factory is a hands-on children's museum adjacent to Autzen Stadium. Some of the exhibits are old or broken, but the kids had a great time, especially in the planetarium show, which I thought was a bit too young for the kids (6&7). Admission...More

I've only been there for two of the recent Pink Floyd laser light shows. What a unique and entertaining experience at a very reasonable cost.
