    We were in town this week with the kids and just started googling for things to do with kids and this came up. it's a great place to come with kids and enjoy it also as an adult. Entrance fees are pretty good, 9 for children and 13 for adults. I did find a Groupon for 1/2 off and used it. Lots of different areas and games to play and experiment with. Food court has pizza hut, subway, Chinese and hotdogs and hamburger place.
    There is also an imax theater with 3 different movies the day we went there.
    Overall we spent about $50 for several hours...Read More

    We just got back from our second overnight adventure at McWane. We go with our cub scout pack every few years. The experience is AWESOME! The coordinator, Jeff Pace, is great!!!! He is so easy to communicate with and to plan an event. The facility is TONS OF FUN for all ages. The exhibits are innovative, creative, and engaging. The kids learn a lot and have a blast doing it. The scout program is extremely flexible and customize-able. The staff are friendly and helpful. The kids love to have the whole museum to themselves where they can...Read More

The scout program is extremely flexible and customize-able. The staff are friendly and helpful. The kids love to have the whole museum to themselves where they can run, play, and explore with only their friends. Parents, rest easy; the doors are locked and security guards and staff are present to make sure that your children are safe, even when they are out of your sight. Even the food is yummy! They served us chicken tenders, mashed potatoes, salad, and rolls for dinner, which is included in the overnight fee. Everyone had plenty to eat. The cost is EXTREMELY REASONABLE as well.

I cannot say enough good things about this trip. I strongly suggest that you plan a day trip with family or friends or spend the night with a group sometime soon. You won't be disappointed.
