    Recently went here on a group fieldtrip & it wasn’t worth the money we paid (even with a group rate). When it was time to have lunch in their little lunch room, we had 3 supervisors sitting in the room watching us the whole time. We were given 20-25 minutes to pass out the children’s lunches, sit down, eat & clean up. We all felt like we were rushed to eat. Upon entering, there were staff that acted like they didn’t want to be bothered with & was just rude when one of the adults asked questions. Then while walking through the place, there were other groups of kids running around, jumping over things, yelling loudly & not giving other kids a turn to try things out, One kid from the group actually pushed a child from our group just to get in front to go first. We looked around, but couldn’t find any adult chaperone anywhere. We couldn’t even find staff members to bring this to their attention.Overall, I nor the rest of our staff was unhappy with this fieldtrip.

    The place definately seems geared towards younger children. So I would agree with other posts that this museum is quite lacking. The total waste of space is very noticeable especially when you travel the elevator and get the birds eye view. Many exhibits don’t function as they should and with the admission prices they charge you would think there would be better upkeep. The new mind bender exhibit is a plus and found it to be one of the very few. It’s worth a trip on a discount day of sorts, but until management gets a clue; just drive to Boston’s science center…. much better.

    I took my 16 year old grandson this morning. We paid $30.50 at 11:20 am and we were out of there within 15 minutes if that. This is not for this age group at all. Nothing there even interested him and he is into science and technology. I feel I just gave a donation the theConnecticut Science Center. I would not recommend this for any young adult from 14 – 17. Nothing of interest. Just a bunch of kids running around. Never again.

    To be honest- overrated. Although the building is 9 stories, only 3 of those feature exhibits. The museum in its entirety takes between 2-4 hours to explore at a slow pace. While the exhibits range in variety, they are rather lacking. In fact, many of the exhibits we visited weren’t functional or were closed. Overall I would regretfully not recommend this point of interest.

    WORST science center ever, half of the exhibits were not working or not working properly. We (my husband and I) originally bought tickets to see a movie with the exhibits, but after walking around the entire place in under 1.5 hours we still had another hour before the movie started. We didn’t bother staying for movie we were so disappointed with the place. There’s a huge waste of space with the building and they could have added many more exhibits. I’m appalled by the CT science center, do not waste your money.
