“Great "once in a lifetime" visit.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

The cost for two adults and one child was outrageous. Glad we went but I am sure they are hoping to get lots of "one-timers" to justify the cost. No coupons or discounts available. We had a membership to the old affordable science centre but I can't justify the costs for a family of 4 various aged kids and an adult.

“membership policy unfair”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

families are being forced to pay more...

Why does it matter what type of membership my wife has or for that matter any other person in my home? So if I was single I would have paid 30.00 to upgrade but because I am married I would have to pay 60.00 to upgrade??
