This place has a lot of scientific exhibits that would excite kids and older kids(like me :D ) alike. If you have time to spare this is definitely a go-to place. Not expensive and a must visit.

My family always enjoys going to the exploratory. There isn't much change in the place over the years but since it is activities to do it is still fun to come and redo things you've done before!

We miss the robots! That being said, this is a fun place for families with children 10 and under. Some of the activities were not working properly, but for the most part is was very good.
