    The annual passes are not worth the fee. After a couple of visits it becomes boring for a 4 year old. The visiting exhibits are a few and long between, not to mention sparse. It is more of a play ground that a place to learn new and exciting things. Imagine Nation in Bristol, CT is more diverse in activities and events and generally more educational for the kids IMHO.

    i made the mistake of accompanying someone here. for such a new building, the lobby smells strongly of mold… which was a stark contrast from the ancient places i’ve been to. the amount of misinformation or meaningless bits of information really took the cake, though – they do a disservice to the young mind. i hope no family gets fooled into thinking that there is anything truly educational about this place. you would be better off visiting a library. it is like being in a noisy bazaar with some cheap thrills around the corner but nothing actually worthwhile to spend time on. for a somewhat better alternative, visit the nearby aquarium (that has far more water but a lower amount of fungal spores) in Norwalk or the children’s museum in Stamford (which is only worthwhile if you go to a good exhibit, hike, or visit the farm). i hope they improve after this review.

    We took our 3-year old grandson here last week and found the place short on activities to engage him. The water exhibit was a highlight, and the outdoor play area was a close second. However, the exhibit about “feelings” seemed too politically correct for our liking, and a complete yawn to him. We found it difficult to engage him in the healthy lifestyle exhibit, too. The construction section really had nothing for kids to do. I can see where this might be a good alternative rainy day activity, if you can stand the crowds. But the cost is high, and I am not convinced that a child with a water table at home wouldn’t learn just as much there as he would at this museum. Also think it would be more fun to come with a friend or two.

    I have a 2 year old and we came here twice. She loved it… I think it’s even better for 4-8 year old bracket…
