I've been to a lot of museums and this one was just ok. They did have a nice section where you could touch some of the small animals there. The museum was pretty empty when i went, but then it was a Tuesday morning.

We took the kids to Sciport for the day and it did not disappoint what a wonderful way to spend a couple hours and very cost-effective you can even get a membership I think for less than $130 a year for a family of five or just pay as you go they have a new pops museum which means power... More

Some very interesting exhibits our grandchildren really enjoyed however some exhibits not working and a large number may have been working but without anyone there to explain or explanations at the exhibit no telling what they were supposed to learn. I wouldn't advise spending the time or money to go.

I took my 3 and 1 year old grandsons to the museum. There were activities to interest both age groups. A great place to visit.

Visited late on Thursday, with just enough time to catch the last IMax show. Presentation was good. Viewed the under sea eco film. The discovery part is geared to school age visitors. Several displays were undergoing minor renovation. All in all, a good afternoon of science exposure for grades k-10.

My wife and I visited here while we were staying at Sam's Town. It was fun and had lots of exhibits. The IMAX picture was also really neat to see. The theatre room seemed sort of damp though. We want to bring our son to see this place as we think he will enjoy it.

It was raining so we decided to go to Sciport. The kids had a blast. Be sure they wear something comfortable and not new. It's not dirty mind you but they will get messy. Very educational and fun.

Enjoy spending time at the Sci-port Discovery Center. Educational and interactive displays for all ages. Worth the price of admission it's very easy to spend a couple of hours here, or all day. Great location in downtown Shreveport overlooking the Red River.
