The perfect day for our 5 year old grandson (probably good for up to 8 years). Lots of hands on attractions all with an educational bias. We arrived at 11.00 and left at 16.45. The only downside is that there is no coffee shop/cafe so...More

We took our 6 year old here. Coming from a much larger city I was expecting more. It is a very small science center with few exhibits. While my little one enjoyed it I would not invest in a membership. Not enough there to do...More

During our visit my son was extremely impressed and entertained by all of the hands on exhibits. What can make a boy happier than huge building blocks and legos. I would not go during a field trip. While I was there one arrived and it...More

This place is completely geared toward kids 10 and under, I would say. That being said, I laugh at people who review this place as adults and say "I had a horrible time. So boring." Clearly it's boring and small for you....grow up, you're an...More

This place is part of the Pogo pass I purchased from Living Social. Would it be appropriate for a 13 year old or will she be bored?

I would say that it was perfect for kids up to 10. At 13 I think she would be bored after the first 5 minutes unless she was with a younger sibling who she could "educate". There is a museum next door dedicated to "video... More
