Love this place. 4 floors of entertainment and education. Plenty of things to do for young and old. There is a cafe in the building or you can go outside to one of the restaurants at Heritage Square.

The Arizona Science Center is very fun as well as very educational! They have some wonderful exhibits. We have been about 10 times in the past 3 years and are always very impressed. Our children are preschool age and we weren't too sure they would enjoy it, but they had a great time. They had a Sesame Street exhibit about the human body that was specifically geared for small children, which was incredible! There are new exhibits all the time. It's a fun place to spend an afternoon. Check it out!! The staff is very friendly and fun!

I recently visited the Arizona Science Center again. This time my husband and I took my 2-year old daughter since they had the "Sesame Street Presents The Body" exhibit. I was not sure if it would be to 'advanced' for her, but she seemed to really enjoy it and participated in several activities. She really loved the obstacle course, Hooper's store ,and dance with Grover sections of the Sesame Street exhibit.

We all had a fun time and ended up staying there longer than we thought we would and enjoyed many of the other parts of the museum as well.

We had a coupon from the Entertainment book to use so the cost was reasonable, otherwise a little pricey. Probably would look into getting a membership once daughter is a little older.

Just a group of "ex-kids" decided to explore on our day off and we had a fun time ourselves. Many exhibits are aimed at kids, but there were plenty of interesting things to look at for us "kids at heart" as well as watch little kids have a blast at the exhibits. Everything is hands on. A friend went here with her son, but she found it boring, and thought her son just had an ok time. We just made it to the 3rd floor before the museum closed so we missed some exhibits. I would say I really liked the Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago alot more, but this is the closest thing here in Phoenix. Entertainment Book had a "2 for 1 ticket" coupon, and parking can be validated if you remember to bring in your stub from the garage.

We have been to the Arizona Science Center many times. Usually for class field trips. The kids love it there. They have so much to do, you can easily spend the whole day there without getting bored. The only drawback is the cost, I found it to be quite expensive.

The Arizona Science Center is one definite must-go place if you visit Phoenix. We had our office community event there and the place is very beautiful. We got a nice conference room and all the staff are very polite and friendly. We had this private planetarium presentation and it was the bomb! Very informative and interesting. I'm gonna bring my relatives here when they come during thanksgiving.

The Science center is located in downtown Phoenix, so be prepared for traffic and to pay for parking. However, once you get there, you'll find the science center to be a fun experience. We love all of the interactive exhibits.

PROS: Great exhibits
CONS: Parking and traffic can be bad

This place is great! They have all kinds of interesting and education exhibits. They have something for everyone from preschool to adults! They are hands on exhibits which are great for kids to learn and have fun. They also have a planetarium and big screen movies. The prices are very reasonable for an afternoon of fun. I would recommend that you must go to the AZ Science Center at least once if you haven't been yet.

Excellent hands on museum for the family! This place is outstanding! They have wonderful displays, and it's a great place to learn about all kinds of things. Prices are excellent, and it is just totally fun to spend an entire day in here! They have lots of exhibits, and even some science shows throughout the day.

Whether you are a child or an adult you are bound to find this place interesting. They have a lot of cool exibits and I really like how they always have new stuff to see. The staff is great to. Just call and double check their hours though because I believe they vary.

Lots of fun INDOOR air conditioned activities. I never tire of the planetarium. The exhibits are great, the kids love it, and even though we tend to visit more in the summer to escape the heat, it's still a great year-round experience.

This is one place you don't have to tell the kids "Don't Touch, just look". There are more hands on exhibits than you get possible handle in one evening & your kids might just learn something while they play!

Great downtown location, lots of hands on displays and a food court make this a nice family destination. The planetarium shows are also cool. The only drawback is that there's a lot of stair climbing to do in this four-story building.
