Interactive

What a great day to entertain 4 hyperactive kids. They just loved that they could touch and play with the exhibits and not just look. They learned a lot without even trying - well worth the visit

Good

The movie is big long for my little boys 7 and 4yr old. Telescope queue is bit long to see the sky. Generally it is ok to go there once

Out of this world!

Space Place is amazing! We visited with three kids who had a blast! (As did the adults :)) The Space Place team went above and beyond to help us with our wheelchair bound son and were extremely friendly and accommodating. They were knowledgeable, passionate and a genuinely awesome group of people. We learned a lot in our visit and had a lot of fun. The facilities are excellent and we will be back!
