Our children had a blast from the 4yr old up to the 12yr old. All were wore out by the end of the day. Even us adults had fun.

Amazing!!! This museum has so much to offer. There are so many hands on activities. I especially liked the body floor. There was an amazing train display. The robotics floor was amazing as well. Definitely worth a visit for any age person.

If I had children with me I would give 5 stars but this museum was not for adults without children. The submarine was very cool and educational. The shows were not very informative for adults and tailored directly to children.
