    Dreadful visit, May 2014. I was last there in the late 90's when my kids were middle school age. The place was smaller but incredible. Today, the exhibits were cheesy and in poor condition. The "energy quest" room was sponsored by Exxon Mobil, and was basically a song of praise to fossil fuel. The cafeteria was truly vile -- the eating area was dark and filthy, and the food was truly disgusting. This used to be one of the great science museums in the world. Now, it's just a place to amuse busloads of schoolchildren for a few hours. I will...Read More

    My sister went to the center this afternoon with her elderly mother. They thought it would be part of a fun day trip. They got there 20 minutes before the exhibits closed, and were told that they would still be charged the full $10 entrance fee. and that there was no senior discount even!
    They decided that for 20 minutes, that would not be worth it, but my sister asked the person at the desk, Mr. Lawrence Jones, if she could use the restroom quickly, before continuing their drive. My sister and her mother were told that they would have to pay...Read More

    We were lucky enough to be gifted a membership here. It's a fantastic place where even a 1.5yo toddler can have a great time!

My sister went to the center this afternoon with her elderly mother. They thought it would be part of a fun day trip. They got there 20 minutes before the exhibits closed, and were told that they would still be charged the full $10 entrance fee. and that there was no senior discount even!
They decided that for 20 minutes, that would not be worth it, but my sister asked the person at the desk, Mr. Lawrence Jones, if she could use the restroom quickly, before continuing their drive. My sister and her mother were told that they would have to pay the full $10 just to go use the restroom.
My sister and her mother are both diabetics, and her mother is 70 years old. What kind of facility denies ladies the use of their facilities by charging a fee for the use of a restroom. I notice on line that there are a number of ratings for this location that state it has really gone down hill, and that it is dirty and poorly staffed.
I would have to add our outrage to the chain. The staff, noteably Mr. Lawrence Jones is obviously un-educated, rude and socially inept if he will deny 2 ladies the use of the restroom without payment. If, in his defense, this is a Corporate Policy, then Shame on the Liberty Science Center for creating an environment where their employees are not allowed to use their discretion or judgement in situations such as this.
We are documenting this here, as well as in hard copy form to the center itself, in the hopes that there is a thoughtful review of the policy towards the use of the restrooms, because it is an outrage in this day and age that this should even be a question that Mr. Jones had to think about, rather than just opening the door, and letting them in to relieve themselves, and then open the door again to let them out.
Thank you for your time, we look forward to hearing from you regarding what the actual policy is, and what SHOULD have happened - as well as your commitment that this will never happen again.
