This is definitely one of the better science museums that I've been to. Lots of interactive activities for the grand-kids and a few that really sparked my imagination. They especially liked th water exhibit.

13.50 for adults and 11.50 for kids. There are additional activities inside that cost money like tornado simulator. There is a parking lot that would accommodate a RV.
