We went to the exploratory which consists of interactive science activities. There are 3 sectors as well as the MIR space capsule. It is a great rainy day activity

We had a wonderful time at the show. I have not been here for many years and was pleasantly surprised with some of the new additions and changes. Great for families and groups!

Got a deal for this with the water show. Very entertaining place especially for kids. We all enjoyed it. Good activity for rainy days as everything is indoors. One of the better places we visited during our vacation.

This is a tour on your own and at your pace museum. It had interesting, interactive and educational exhibits for kids of all ages. Would recommend to go when it's not so busy if you have a big party.

The Exploratory is full of fun hands on science displays. It has a "space station" feel to it, along with some robotic hosts. It is a nice change of pace from all of the water based attractions. If you child is interested in science, they...More
