This place has won national awards. It is a wonderful, experiential place for kids. (Adults have a lot of fun, too!) It is safe and educational. We have been members for many years and taken grandchildren there many times. We all have fun!

The museum is all hands on for kids and even adults will find some of the exhibits interesting. There are many lab activities to participate in and films that are informative. The price is reasonable and the family will enjoy the visit.

Inexpensive, educational fun!!! My two year old had a blast. Plenty to do and see. She was so excited and curious it was a thrill to watch her maneuver through the activities. Highly recommend this activity!

My children love this place and I enjoy taking them because it is fun and educational. We love the bubbles and the water tables the best probably.

Great place for kids and adults alike. Great time learning abt the world around us. They also have summer camps and weekend activates. Great place for Earth Day too. Close to the natural history museum and a short walk to old town.
