  • They could have done so much with this and it just was not executed that well. They need to improve their attractions.

  • This is a great place if you have little kids, but otherwise I would not go. There are very few things to see or do for adults. Almost everything is set up for small children to do or learn from.

  • Although the admission fee is a bit high, it is an excellent place to spend a whole day. I highly recommend the wonder section if you have a kid below six: there are so many things for them to play with, and they sure will wish to stay and play there forever. There is also a special T-Rex exhibition until January next year; it is worth a visit for dinosaur lovers.
  • Took my 2 year old niece to Science World. 2 and under were free which was nice but it is over $30 per adult which is a pricey. We went tor over 2 hours and my niece was entertained and enjoyed it. We arrived around 10 and it was busy but not too bad. An hour later and the traffic picked up for sure. Lots of activities for children of all ages. We didn’t even see half of it. We had to leave after a couple hours and it was nap time for her. Thought she might be afraid of the T Rex exhibit as my niece was only 2 but she led us into the exhibit and she enjoyed it. This exhibit were the only photos I posted as my niece was in all the others. I’d recommend but it not sure I’d go back again anytime soon because of the price for adults.
