Fabulous! This is an outstanding science center-chock full of interesting and fun exhibits. The hands-on learning can't be beat. It is a blessing to have a place to go to show the children science concepts in such a fun way....in ways that just wouldn't really be possible at home. We have been time and again and my boys always want to go back again. They never get bored. They also offer classes occasionally that are fantastic. Children can build things and do experiments that might be better explained with a group doing the experiment rather than doing it singly at home. We are very fortunate to have this outstanding establishment so close to our home.

This was a good place to visit, unfortunately it closed a few years ago.
