The mission of the World of Wonders Science Museum is to offer fun, educational, hands-on science-based exhibits and programs that stimulate discovery for all ages. And they have done just that!
This fun kids science museum has SO many exhibits to explore! The exhibits are hands-on, which means kids will learn as they play - it can't get better than that! (Unless the exhibits were made out of chocolate...just a thought!)
Each of the exhibits were designed to teach kids something specific, so whether they are developing their senses, confidence, or learning about a specific activity, you know that they are at least learning.
Construction, electricity, kinetic energy, soundwaves...anything you can think of that is related to science is likely covered! And no matter how old your children are, there is something for them.
They host a huge collection of basically the most fascinating hands on experiments kids can do, using construction, magnetics, electrics, soundwaves, kinetic energy, the elements, the senses, and almost anything else scientific you can think of too! Dozens and dozens of them so there's something for all ages and abilities.
There are fiber optic displays, shadow walls, and fun bubble tables where no-one is too old to make bubbles! There is a fun table where kids can test their own reaction time, and experiments where they purposely try and confuse you! How will your brain cope!
Parents - it's a fun day trip where you'll actually have as much fun as the kids!
Science IS fun at the World of Wonders Science Museum...so let's go have a great time AND learn at the same time!
