It was awesome! We loves the human body exhibit, but it's probably going to give small children nightmares. But they would love the rest of the place. There are many hands on exhibits that are really informative and educational. Definitely worth a visit.
We had a great time. We were there for a kids birthday party which was very nice. Kids did cool stuff and then you get free admission to the museum/science center and there is lots to see and do. Like 3-D movies and a outer space section and a Lego section a robotic area. Gift shop. There is a subway located inside. And a nice patio/river walk overlooking the Connecticut river. And while we were there the special exhibit of the human body was there where they show all the muscles and veins and nerves in cross sections etc. so it was a busy day and we had fun. I think everyone did as well. And there was a ice cream with frozen yogurt also.
