Plenty to do and see for all ages. If you are looking to view a movie they have a very very large IMAX screen. You can easily spend the whole day at the science center.

You COULD walk it, but is not a short stroll. My personal feeling is that you would be to tired to do the Science Center justice. It has a lot of walking in itself - and you would still have to walk back to the car.
