My daughter, although less than 2 years old, was very busy exploring the different exhibits. She even chose to participate in a science workshop for children 8 yo and above. Very happy with this place, although the cost adds up - basic admission + special fees + parking. Annual membership might be the way to go.
This was really a fantastic experience. I went with my girlfriend and we had a great time. I loved the da Vinci exhibit. It was so thorough and thought out. A definite must see. The human life exhibit was also a highlight with plenty of interactive parts. A great date location. Please bring your kids in here to expose them to the STEM academics.
This place is pretty awesome... even for the non science types. There are plenty of exhibits to walk through and interact with. The pricing is a bit high though, especially since they charge for parking and have three extended (separate charge) exhibits. They would get more business with a $20 charge that includes parking. That's the only reason I took a star away.
