  • You could spend an entire day here. There are two big interactive/climbing/playground type things inside. There is also a large open play area with big blocks, a giant checker and chess set, a huge light bright, connect four etc. There are tons of great interactive exhibits. My older kids are three and five and they loved it. We were there for four hours and didn't see everything. The exhibits are fun for adults and kids. There is a nursing/changing area for babies and lots of clean restrooms that have sinks easy for kids to reach. Across the board a great experience.
  • I enjoyed visiting the Science Museum! As a college student, I was initially worried that I would feel awkward around a lot of kids and parents. Even though I barely saw anyone else my age, I ignored that fact because I was learning so much. I like the Space area best because I understood much of the physics and science going on. Seeing things I had learned first hand helped me understand it better and made me excited. I feel that people of all ages can find something cool at the museum. Those who don't know much science can still have fun doing the activities and those who do know science can also have fun. I agree with other reviewers that you need a lot of time to go through the entire museum. I didn't have that much time, so I only got through half the museum. Definitely recommend stopping by for any science enthusiast!
