This was a quality science museum. My boyfriend and I attended (without children) and had a good time. There are a few "rides" that simulate a fan boat in the Everglades and the Mars Rover. Plenty of aquariums, insects and other small animals to look at. There are also very playful otters in the back that make for neat photo opportunities. Many exhibits about the human body, weather, extinct animals, planes, and the environment that are hands on and entertaining. We spent about 3 hours here and, although we did not have any children with us, all of the other kids in the museum seemed to be having a great time. No matter what your age, if you're looking for an air-conditioned activity, this very well could be the one.
