Have you ever wondered why you see colors in soap bubbles? Your answer waits at this educational center, a fun science museum that features interactive and hands-on displays. Visitors can check out the House of Science to see how machines and devices work, and what scientific principles take effect. More than 40 different exhibits, including several traveling exhibits, are featured.
We took our grandchildren ages 7 and 4. We split the day between the Zoo and the Discovery Center. The kids had a fantastic time and were disapointed when we had to leave at closing time. They especially loved the minature supermarket with the real scanners.
We go often and our kids (6 & 7) never seen to get tired of it. Great place to visit where you can encourage curiosity in a safe and controlled environment. Their birthday party package is one of the best deals in the city and I highly recommend the nitrogen icecream demonstration. If you are a family the annual pass pays for itself in just a couple of visits!
Awesome experience! The exhibits are user friendly and almost demand interaction and exploration. We spent 4 hours tinkering with the displays (and we are both adults)! We especially enjoyed the "make-shift" construction of the displays and the creative use of materials to demonstrate the wonders of science concepts. Definitely worth the admision. Well done!

this place is great. we spent $20 for a family of 5 to get in there is almost nothing a family of 5 can do for $20. plan to spend a good part of the day we spent 3 hours there and didn't even realize how much time had gone buy till they said they were closing.
