    Was very busy and had a line for ticket purchase. It was a holiday however. Kids out of school etc. like most other science centers in big cities. But great for kids to explore. IMAX was great.

    3 levels of hands on exhibits that are fun & educational for the whole family. Make a day out of it & enjoy a meal in the cafeteria. Admission is $9.95/adult & $7.95/child. Tuesdays children are FREE! Read more

    I loved the in depth medical research and space science, but the upstairs was fun for the kids (and adults young at heart!) activities.

    Awesome place. Added benefit of going on the USS Mather in the summer months. Great IMAX movies too! Can't beat this place if u have kids.

    There are plenty of seats to eat in the third level/mezzanine, when the eatery gets full. Wish an employee would have mentioned it. A fellow visitor did.

    Tons of hands-on exhibits, an Omnimax theater and the NASA Glenn Visitor Center are all here, but don't forget about the 618-foot William G. Mather steamship moored out back.

    Its not bad. But it isn't like it used to be. But then again that might just be because I'm older. Its a nice spot to take the kids. The Omnimax doesn't play feature films though

    Even when they admit the problems were all theirs they DO NOT COMPENSATE for their mistakes and they smile at you while they tell you how sorry they are. Customer Service is not just good manners.
