Visited with a 5 and 7 year old pair of spirited boys who insisted on doing everything afforded during our stop at the museum. It satisfied all their expectations while we were there, and managed to wear the two fellows out over the visit.

There is a section for young kids with a climbing wall, cars to build and run them down ramps, a wind-tunnel vortex, and a separated infant zone with some sensory exploration and a few balls. Young children will also probably enjoy the trains. The crazy...More

The Lego exhibit was excellent.It was quite a discovery to see the work of the artist and how he used Lego blocks to recreate famous paintings and sculptures. His own creations were quite interesting too. For Lego fans, this was a must!

This museum just reopened last November after 3 years of renovations. This is one of the best science museums that we have been. The building is modern with impressive and well laid out displays, and lots of hands on and interactive activities. This museum has...More

The reopening of the museum has brought back some of the traditional features (crazy kitchen, locomotives, etc.) and brought in some new features as well (interactive room with wind, sound, etc.). With all the advances made in science it would be neat to see some...More

We loved the steam trains, but most of the museum fell flat for us. We expected more things to do and more technology. My kids did love the Crazy Kitchen and the music area. The staff was friendly and informative.
