  • We went thinking it would be fun for kids, but the first two floors seemed small with a lot of reading and information but less to observe and see. (Most exhibitions would have been more enjoyable as an informational youtube video). The most enjoyable part was a show of a robot that can do simple tasks. However, that robot is roughly 20 years old, and for a museum of emerging science I would have expected newer technology.
  • We love the special exhibition about robot. It's nice for the kids to see real robot and understand how they work. Regular exhibition also good. Plenty for young kids to explore.
