    Deteriorated, many things don't work, supplies are low. Children WILL have fun if you interact with them, but the money that comes in the box office doesn't show inside.

    Everyone should ask to get in through the open door policy! Everyone!

    Of course, who wouldn't love all the bright colors and fun hands on learning!

    They close in September to move to a new location. :(

    If you buy an annual membership at Fort Worth Science museum, it works here and a bunch of other places.

    They installed new and better exhibits since we were last here in August.

    Simply awesome! Pack lightly, though, since the "mom purse" will have to work up small stairs as you go through the museum. Fantastic value for the museum, gift shop was a bust though.

    Central Texans: if choosing between here and Waco's Mayborn Children's Museum...go to Waco.

    Let your little ones explore the interactive exhibits, get them involved in one of the museum's many programs or send them to summer camp.

    The kids had a nice time. Wouldn't recommend if they're older than 10 and storytime is really for 6 and younger.
