Was closed. Web site is under maintenance. Is it still operating? Was very disappointed because all indications were it would be open that day. Was our plan to visit on a rainy day in Huntsville.

Don't get me wrong, the kids loved it, however, it wasn't worth the price of the admission. I was hoping for more and some of the exhibits were broken.

Fair amount of activities for younger children. Building is smaller than previous location so many exhibits did not move to this location. Because of the smaller footprint, the kids will finish the activities and will be ready to move on sooner rather than later.

We live in Birmingham, so we're spoiled with the Mcwane Center. However, in the eyes of my 5yr old he said sci-quest was "awesome"! We will definitely go again.

Several good STEM learning opportunities with easy entry to the whole experience. Parking was easy as well. Kids from 10 to 25 enjoyed it!

Our grandchildren had a great time here. Most of the activities were very interesting. I do think it would a be a little more fun for children if some of the employees actually demonstrated how to do some of the activities rather than just sitting...More

Adults will enjoy some of the stations as much as the kids. Allow 1 hour minimum for everyone to make their way through. Could easily spend 2 hours.
