Science World reviews
My 3 year old grandson just loved this attraction, it was a major effort on the part of his parents to take him home for his nap. He loved the Eureka section the best with the different air cannons..... more »
I was quite happy how they are operating during this pandemic. Although some exhibitions are closed, they remain opened most of the things kids usually enjoy. It is not packed like before pandemic..... more »
I've never been there because it's too expensive, they had a free thing last Saturday about dogs and cats so finally had a chance to go in and check things out. The giant dinosaur was cool! Rock area was cool! my daughter had a good time! For me though over all I was kinda bored, I think I pictured something much better for the amount it costs to get in. The outside of the building though is awesome!
Amazing place for kids and adults alike. The membership is well worth it. It never gets old especially for kids. You can spend a few hours just in one part and come back another day to hang out in another part. The new outdoor play area is phenomenal although only open in summer. Best times to go are week days after 12.
