The Science Center is a awesome! My concern is that it is a bit expensive when I think about families from low economic status. The prices should be lower with that in mind to allow all people equal opportunities to learn.

For the price you pay to get in here, it doesn't really live up to the hype. small children seem to like it, but it has little to offer adults. It is ok to go there once in a long while, but expensive. You pay to get in, the Imax theatre is extra, and the music exhibit is also extra. My son did enjoy the Children's Gallery, which had toys and playscapes and also has places for tired parents to sit and rest. It seems very well kept and clean, for the most part the workers there are freindly. There is ample well lit parking close by.

You can go here and have fun at ANY age, very young, and very old. There IS something for everyone here! It is fun, educational, and VERY interesting. They usually have something going on at all times, like a special theme, or a special area (one time it was dedicated to dinosaurs, and they were moving and life-size!). This place is a MUST GO! It is NOT expensive either, so grab the kids, Mom, dad, and the grandparents, and GO! The have an IMAX screen to, so you can see a great educational science movie, and feel like you're going to puke!

The Detroit Science Center is a great place because it is fun, educational and very interesting. They usually always have something going on, like a special theme (one time they had dinosaurs that moved, kids loved it). The Imax Dome Theater is amazing! The seat reclines and everything around you is the whole movie, it's really something to experience. The only thing that sucks is that you have to pay admission to get in, then extra admission for the Imax theater, extra admission for the planterium (which is awesome), and then extra admission for the music studio exhibit. Besides that it really is an enjoyable place to learn about things and to have a great time.

This is a pretty good science museum, but for Detroit being a major city I think it could be better. They charge admission to get in, then extra admission for the Imax Dome Theater, then extra admission for the planetarium, then extra admission for the music studio exhibit. Its very expensive for what it is. You would be better going to the Childrens science museums in Ann Arbor or Toledo. That being said the Dome Theater is amazing! There is nothing quite like it, your seat reclines back and everything around you is the movie. The planetarium with surround sound is also quite something to see. The rest of the exhibits however, are average at best. I wouldn't bother unless you are going to see the dome movie and planetarium also.

The New Detroit Science Center offers a great experience for all ages. For the very young, there is a special section with a variety of exhibits to entertain and educate children. They offer a water table (smocks available), which seems to be quite popular with the under 5 set. The rest of the museum is great as well, with exhibits that explore all different aspects of science. They offer daily shows which are entertaining for both children and adults. In addition, they have an IMAX theater and special exhibits which change on a regular basis.

The Detroit Science Museum is one of Detroit's hidden treasures. When visiting with the kids, be sure to check out the tot section with the water tables (always a huge hit) and wavy mirrors. They also have interactive computers for the children. It is stroller friendly and has an easily accessible elevator in the middle of the museum. The museum has a small cafe if you wish to spend lunchtime there. Parking is very close and our Entertainment book has a discount coupon in it. You can also purchase a membership and visit the museum as often as you wish. It's a great place to take the kids on those snowy Michigan days!

What a great place to spend a day you can find so many different things to explore and the kids love it. I love watching them as they discover how different things work. This is perfect for a day out or a field trip. Also you HAVE to go to the IMAX it doesn't even matter what they are showing it is always cool in there theater.

The price of admission is quite reasonable. The parking is close by. Fun for all ages! They also have a very cool IMAX theatre screen showing very good movies.

PROS: Entertaining and you learn something
CONS: none
