  • Must visit with kids, full on fun and so many things to explore, try-out, and participate. It's huge and if you spend good amount of time in each of the exploration then you might run out of time. Better to start early in the day ~11am. It takes definitely 5-6 hours to cover all the way from point 1 to point 5. Many installations require two people to participate so it's always good go with friends or family. They offer discounts for some employees like I got 50% off by showing my Google badge.
  • Wasn't planning on visiting this place. It's a happy accident. This is an awesome place to visit. Interactive and educational. Side note: Who ever found my wife's wallet there and turned it in, we recovered it untouched. Millions of thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
