I took my 6 year old over here, he loved it. I loved it too. Such a wonderful place for interactive learning. They have covered so many great subjects. I really recommend this place for families with young kids.

This facility was clean and well maintained. The staff are helpful. The IMAX movie was very interesting and my daughter loved the big screen. My daughter also really enjoyed how there was so much to see, do and be active with the displays.

The science center was perfect to get away from the outdoors for a bit on a hot day and when it was raining out. i think it's perfect get a little respite from all the crowds outside and catch a break

We saw the Imax film predators, and decided to go back the next day for the American adventurer. Great 3D viewing, the camera crew has done brilliant work bringing us into the depth of nature and animal kingdom.
