The place might seem small when you first walked in, but when you get to each station/exhibit and learn or work on them, it can take some time to do. The time spend depends on how interested you are with each station, you can find it boring if you have no interest in science (cause & affect), or kids tends to be too young to know yet. We find it fun and educational. Very highly recommended especially you are going to Dutch Wonderland and need something else to do on your itinerary.

Many of the exhibits in this one room venue were broken. Children, especially older ones, were unattended, rude, and pushed in front of the little ones. No interaction from staff like other similar venues. Lots of the activities were duplicated throughout the room. Price was definitely too high for the poor quality of this venue.

This is a great place to go to with the family. So many different activities with things changing all the time. Would look for a discount online 1st. Parking is free and just across the street.

My niece thoroughly enjoyed this adventure. She loves science and couldn't get enough of this place. Our only regret was not getting there earlier. We got there about 4 and they closed at 5.

We spent 2 hours and could have stayed longer. Tons of interactive items, everything had all of the pieces ready to go. Bathrooms were clean and the gift shop was neat. Parking was free and close.
