My family and I all found something to enjoy here. The topics they touched on were immense (genetics & the inheritance of genes, global warming & its damages, DNA & tracking criminals, what dark matter is, the composition of the universe & its expansion). I think this is geared towards an older audience (8th grade and beyond), and anyone younger may not have an appreciation or understanding of these topics. It's great for teenagers, college students, and adults, and very interesting. I love this science center!

PROS: Only $5 admission!
CONS: Not for small children

This museum is original and one-of-a-kind. It isn't boring and stiff, nor does it have the new-age look so many museums do (solar-powered exhibits, interactive lights, gigantic movie screens). Instead, it's a cross in between - an interactive look at real problems we face today, such as global warming. Displays work in a mechanical fashion (read: they're engineered and don't just sit there as cut-outs) to literally SHOW you different processes we ordinarily just read about on paper. I love criminology and was fascinated by the DNA exhibit, which showed how to crack a case using small fragments of human fingerprint, hair, and fiber traces.
