  • This is a small museum with no large marquee exhibit but you can still get lost in here for hours. We took our 5 and 10yr olds over the holidays and it was a great hit, we even had to make a return...  more »

  • I didn't know this existed until I went on a school field trip. The students had so much fun building, designing, creating. We also made slime with an engineer. Ours was great with explaining the process, what each solution was and did. Highly recommend going!
  • I took my 3.5 and 7 year old boys for the second time today. They really enjoy all the building opportunities and were excited for a set of stations where you were supposed to make something out of paper (a visor in our case). I was extremely disappointed by how confusing the instructions were (perhaps we picked the wrong thing to make?), there were no staff members available for guidance (or even in the room at all) and furthermore, the supplies were lacking - pencils were not sharpened, string was all used up, etc. We were there within an hour of opening so either the supplies were depleted quickly or they weren't stocked well in the first place. We were bummed.
