A wonderful place to take the whole family while you are in Lafayette. Always new exhibits and a great place to have fun and learn new things at the same time.

This is an outstanding exhibit of the history of the petroleum industry! Good for beginners and advanced energy professionals. Most valuable to school aged kids wanting to learn more about where the products they use daily come from!

Took grandkids to visit when a dinosaur exhibit was there. Small but interesting place to visit and close to the Children’s Museum.

I visit the museum once a year. It is so amazing to learn so much about the dinosaurs in such an interactive way. The Science museum is a fascinating experience for both children and adults.
