A great hands on museum for kids as well as adults, we really enjoyed it. My husband is handicapped and he had a great time with all the exhibits. The children there were well behaved and did not interfere with adults participating in exhibits.

Only a short walk from the convention center or Sheraton Grand. $13 Groupon included IMAX and made for a nice afternoon. Four floors of interactive exhibits kept me engaged 2+ hours. Gift shops normally entice me more than this one did.

No free parking but there is a parking garage adjacent to museum. Bring in your ticket and they will redeem a portion of the cost. I think you only end up paying five dollars versus the hourly rate the garage charges. Hope... More
