Neat place to have a few hours of fun.

Took my two boys for a Saturday morning out. Nice place to learn about anything science. Loved the hands on activities. It is a little pricey, but planetarium shows are free!

I went with a friend of mine who has a 1-year-old baby boy. He had a very nice time here, even though the museum is clearly oriented towards older children (science area.....). The baby enjoyed "animal encounters," where he met a snake. The big auditorium-like area in the basement had lots of fun things for the baby to do. The... More

I love sci-works ..... I went with friends and their children and had a blast. so many activities that challenge the minds of the young and old alike ... Part of the visit is outdoors so I would recommend going when the weather is in the 70's; otherwise most of the visit will be inside ...

We took our grandkids and enjoyed the many displays. They had a ball and we could have spent all day here!

We brought our niece and nephew here for a nice afternoon activity and we had way more fun than we expected! There are tons of things for kids and for adult to do. We adults enjoyed ourselves as much as the kids! We enjoyed the music/noise room, the planetarium, and the live animals. Really, all of the exhibits were great.... More

This is a great place to hang out with the kids. Always lots to learn. The have special exhibits from time to time, and this is a fun time to re-explore. We also like to go at Christmas to take pics with Santa and make crafts and reindeer food. Awesome staff.

We spent the morning at SciWorks when we visited Winston Salem. The kids had a great time in the Physics Work area. The Sounds Work area is also a lot of fun but can get REALLY loud. Great place to take kids to hang out and play.
