Spent almost three hours here. The ball attraction was very fun. Some balls were stuck in the water area. My six year old son enjoyed the wav climbing area, the fishing area and the shooting rockets. The Blue Man group exhibit was also very neat.

The museum is really lovely and interactive. The children really enjoyed the activities. The scientific experiments like making ice cream was really well done.

We took our 16 month old and he had a blast. Some of the exhibits were a little beyond what he could do, but there was still plenty for him to play on. He didn't slow down for 2 hours.

We took our 14 month old to this museum, this past weekend. The museum website states it's targeted for children 1 to 8, and they even charge you full price for a 14 month old. However, the exhibits and sections weren't exactly targeted for that...More

My 7 year old son can't wait to go back. He loved every section. So many interactive exhibits and opportunities to work together. Many shows to watch/participate in. Lots of types of exhibits and a big climbing area.

They have special days when there are speakers and have hands on experiments. Other than that, every day is the same with the same attractions. I'd say, it's best for children 6 and under.

Hi David! We are closed on Wednesdays August through May (the academic school year) in order to fix exhibit components that might not be working properly and to heavily disinfect the entire Museum.

We went on homeschool day which I believe is the first or second Tuesday of the month (where kids get in free) and yes, it was crowded.
