  • The science center wasn’t bad but they were way too many rough public school students pushing their way across the exhibits. they needed a little more activities for toddlers and kids up to age 5. I feel like they should have a special time that field trip students come through so that they are not mowing over the other paid guests. it was a little difficult to find the parking garage but once we did parking was easy and it was only three dollars. I gave it three stars because it needed more interactive activities for young children. The security guards were sweet and they were excellent at doing their jobs. The security guards were so nice they even directed people and told them where to go to get safely to the garage.

We loved the Balls of Fire experiment. All the employees showed us cool things and had us smiling throughout our whole experience.
