It has been awhile since we have visited the Science Center. But the staff was very professional and the kids had a blast. The planetarium is fantastic as always a treat!

Love the new planetarium experience 2018! Newly remodeled area gives up to date information about the universe! If you gone before it’s worth a revisit!

My family and I live in the area and have never made it over to the Science Factory. We saw their Halloween event advertised and it sounded like it could be fun for the kiddos, so we gave it a shot. We won’t be going...More

I do wish they had the budget to change out exhibits more often, however, my kids really enjoy this place! When I say let's go it is all hoops and hollering with excitement! Excellent for 10 and under IMO.

We drove 160 miles round trip expecting to see animals and a star/planet show in the planetarium by the way their website portrayed this "Tot Day". The only animal was a snake and there was nothing in the planetarium but a woman in a frog...More

This place was great. We almost didn't go due to the mixed reviews but we (grandma, two science-y parents and a 3 and 6 year old) all enjoyed it. We spent about two hours there and pet a boa constrictor, made paper airplanes and a...More
