Great tour guide who was very informative and knowledgeable! The only negative things are that the parking is limited, the picnic area is very small and the playground is not shaded.

Nice place to visit with young kids or even when just out for an afternoon stroll. One of the first places I visited when moving to Hampton. Downtown location is perfect!

I recently went here for a wedding and it is a great place for everyone to gather and have a fun time. I would recommend this place as an option for those who are going to get married soon or in the near future.

We've been to a lot of museums but this was the most enjoyable adult and child hands on science museum we've seen. My husband road inside a simulator and we both "drove on Mars". Lots to do and see for hours plus an I Max...More

I don't remember the entry price, but 1 IMAX is included in every admission which was a nice surprise.

I'm not sure, I've never seen any dogs in the museum or any signs pertaining to that either. Try contacting them at 1-757-727-0900.
