Lie on a bed of nails. Conduct DNA experiments. Check how your flight or fight response works. Get your height measured. Good for 8-12 year olds. Little kids get bored & just run around. Drug death exhibit informative but a bit overwhelming & disturbing for sensitive kids. Could use better signs to rest rooms! Wandered in circles!
Geared towards kids only!

We were expecting a more informative atmosphere but this was mainly a day care center for kids. It was empty and not at all engaging. We walked out after 15 minutes. This was a waster of my time and money!
Average as far a science museums go but nice to visit

our 9 yo's Favorite exhibit was the tornado of mist. Liked the educator/staff involvement and spacing throughout the museum. There were lots of opportunities to interact with the staff and do small experiments.
Not too great for little ones

We went here for our little kids to see the dinosaur bones which the kids loved but wanted to touch more than they were allowed. However, for our little ones (4 and 2 1/2) the rest of the museum except for the room for the younger kids was too much for them and not very enjoyable. The kids area was interesting with an X-ray and science lab, magnetic building wall, dress up area, and many other interactive exhibits but the favorite for our family was the water area. Overall, if you want to go somewhere with the younger kids, hit Port Discovery instead.
A real fun place for both adults and kids

We took our two Grandsons, 5 and 9 and they had an excellent time. There really was not too many things that were over their heads. The IMax theater is definitely worth the price.
