This was a great stop for our 6 year old. So interactive and so much for kids to do. We spent a very long time here and kept finding fun new stuff. We will be back for sure! more »
Science was great! Union station offers so much and our wrist bands allowed us to go in and out to explore other things in union station. My kids loved the water part and outside. It was so interactive. We went Labor Day and it wasn’t crowed. They had the best time. We will definitely be back!!!
My kids and I really enjoyed science city. And even better we were able to go for educator weekend. I really enjoyed the brain exhibits. The kids loved the outdoor equipment. Well, they really enjoyed it all. I was so pleased that even though many people enjoyed educator weekend it didn't feel too overcrowded. I was disappointed that all the planetarium spots were filled up, but we did go later in the day, so it was understandable. And enough stuff to fill our time. Loved that we were able to have a parking voucher.
