  • Great Place! I've been going there every year since I was 6, great place for most/all ages! All the improvements to the building have been good for the most part. I don't really like how they have removed the indoor roller coaster but I can understand it was for safety measures or such. Anyway definitely recommend for people!
  • This is the best science center in the world. The train display really tops it off and they have there own submarine!!! My childhood was spent at this wonderful establishment. I would recommend everyone to go.
