The place is great for any ages. My kids are 12 and they had so much fun. The people who work their also very nice. One of my girls forgot her glasses while we were there. Next day I called from Canada, where we were vacationing and they packed it for us and shipped it to our home in California. By the time we came back from vacation, the box was waiting for us. Thank you very much!

This is a fun museum for kids. Our two year old loved it. It wasn't nearly as engaging for adults as some other children's museums I have been to. Worth checking out for the kids.

One of the best places for kids to learn about science concepts. Every item in display is interactive and covers wide range of topics from physics,biology to English. Two floors full of awesomeness. Be prepared to spend at least half a day with your young ones here. There is also an outdoor play ground with many activities. There is a cafeteria but no food available for purchase. There is a papa Jones just 2 minutes walk. You can reenter the place if you go out for lunch. Lots of parking place available. The store has lots of interesting books and toys for kids.

A wonderful place that we brought my 2 yr old to. We spent about 3 hours there and had a fun time. I suggest bringing extra clothes though because they have 2 water stations that kid naturally gravitate to so it's hard to keep them dry. Overall, it's a great place and we will be going back!

My daughter enjoyed our visit. Several of the exhibits and activities were out of order, but she didn't seem to mind. The outdoor playground in particular was nice.
