  • This place is really average. A beautiful old regal building filled with gimmicky Disneyland style displays lacking any substance. Also went to watch one of the planetarium shows and uppity school.....  more »

  • Love this place. A lot of things you can do and have fun with. Around this time it is not that busy. It is about 25 dollars per person. They have deals as well. Unfortunately when I went the airplane part was closed. Even with it closed up, it is still a great place to go and learn!
  • Very nice family friendly (even provides wheelchairs!) staff was super helpful , kind and funny! Great prices, unfortunately we did go during the pandemic so a few things were closed due to safety precautions, so we will definitely visit again. Staff was walking around making sure everything was clean and sanitized!
