Visitor Reviews

“Such a fun place to learn and explore different things in life. Fun for adults and children!”

Jennifer Lutz

“This was an awesome place to go see on vacation! I myself am a HUGE science nerd, and the exhibits are of all sorts of different kinds of science. The exhibits are made in a way that kids and adults alike can enjoy them, and I think that is great because I know that children can get bored easily if they don't have engaging things to do. Not once did I feel like I was 'too old' for the exhibits. Totally suggest this!”

Lily Umberger

“Plenty of things for kids to enjoy. Adults too can have a good time. The Dome is also a great option for the family. Check out the big gift shop before you go!”
