  • Always a nice place to visit. No matter how many times I go I always discover some new thing that I swear wasn't there last time. My children never fall to be amazed by the exhibits. The most awesome part is that because I live in the neighborhood I get a family membership for $10😊 even if it wasn't that price I would still purchase it Judy adds I have in prior years...a great place to visit
  • This place was amazing! We are from Cleveland and were passing through the area. We only had a few hours but were blown away with the amount of interactive exhibits for the kids to do. Will definitely come back when we have more time to explore!
