"Great experience with hands on exhibits and movies..."
"This was amazing. I had bought a groupon to go here with my boys ages 7, 11. It's not a huge place but it took us 2 hours to go through it all. We found parking right outside the front door on a weekday. Beautiful exhibits. There is a giant globe that you can move around and see the different temps, tsunami's, earthquake areas highlighted on it. The movies were great about the hubble telescope and the mars rovers. We also watched one on the biosphere. Very well done! ”
