Sciworks is a great place to let kids explore and learn at their own pace. It's worth getting an annual pass if you can return. Only disappointment was that we missed the last planetarium show when we went at 3:30 pm. This seems early for...More

I've had several meetings at Sciworks during the summer. The place was packed with engaged kids doing all kinds of hands on activities! I hadn't been here for years since my kids are grown. What I was struck with was the deep engagement I saw...More

While your children might enjoy the science exhibits, this company has no right to have donkeys, sheep and goats living in a deplorable environment. The donkeys and goats were severely malnourished and heat exhausted in 100 degree weather. There was nothing for the goats to...More

This place is huge, with so much to do that you probably can't fit it all in one day. There was so much to see and do. My kids absolutely loved it and was busy the entire time. They begged to not leave yet. We...More

It's a decent science museum with a lot of interactive exhibits, however, it is way overpriced for what they offer. And definitely don't pay extra for the planitarium show. It's a glorified laser light show with loud music and basically nothing scientific-related to offer.

I have had the pleasure of visiting since I was a child, back then it was called The Nature Science Center. The animals, exhibits and grounds give a true feeling of what life would be in the wild. Unfortunately, the city leaders have deemed SciWorks...More

Took my two boys for a Saturday morning out. Nice place to learn about anything science. Loved the hands on activities. It is a little pricey, but planetarium shows are free!
