We love this museum! There is so much to do. They have all kinds of activities. Sometime can get a bit crowded. Great for toddlers up to about 8-10. Miss the VW bug you can paint though.

My grandchild loved this place. There is a lot to do and a lot to challenge the minds of young people, Some of the problems were even beyond me! It is brand new and very well and very well appointed and laid out.

We arrived to Palm Springs before our hotel would allow us to check in. Considering it was well over 100 degrees and we didn't feel like shopping, why not educate the kids while letting them explore and play. We enjoyed a couple hours here and...More
