Excellent scientific educational activity with great fun for children of a wide age range (2 to 15 year approximately). The models teach, in addition to Science and Technology, skills of coordinated team work, pattern recognizing and use of motor nerves.

Accessible and engaging for children and their parents/grandparents. It was easy to see the animals and the docents were friendly and informative. Spent less time in the other science areas but definitely want to check that out next time.

Indoor area is a bit over priced for what you get. A bit disappointing. Outdoor area with rescued local wildlife is very well done.

Great place for a short visit with young kids! Especially if you want to do something for a couple of hrs or so. Plenty to keep them entertained.

CuriOdyssey is perfect place for toddlers, school-aged kids and adults. A lot of hands-on activities that sparks the imagination. Great exhibit about beavers and other animals. My three year old had a blast!
