Honestly not worth the money nor the time. The staff is really rude and did not treat my kids well. It seemed they were just looking to have fun rather than help us. No doubt the worst science museum I've been to, never bringing my kids here again

Love this museum. We've loved it since it opened, and now with the added 'rotation' exhibit, it's better than ever. It's like and indoor science-themed playground.
Great for preschoolers and elementary kids too.

Not worth the expensive admission. It's tiny.

I've been to a ton of science museums and this is probably the worst. Don't waste your time or money.

Glad I had a half-off coupon, not worth full price.
