Older kills will probably have a better appreciation for this place, since it's less interactive and hands on than, say, the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center. That being said, as a grown-up, I think they've done a good job with the exhibits here and bring in some top notch rotating stuff. It is a little pricey for what it is, though.
