Connecticut Science Center, Hartford Reviews

  • This is a neat building. So many things you can do all in one day. Each level has at least one different theme with fun activities for kids. I've heard they offer more adult activities from time to time but it's still interesting to check out even when they're not. Both the inside and the outside architecture provide some contrast to the surrounding area. They have their own parking structure or there's more parking nearby at the convention center. Lots of other great things in the neighborhood within walking distance. I like visiting the Science Center with the kid and grabbing a bite to eat at one of the surrounding restaurants.

  • It's a vast space to explore and learn. The exhibits are pretty good - definitely educational for an 8 year old. Not as great as science museums in bigger cities (which would be fine, except that the entrance cost is the same). Really cool that the whole building is powered by a fuel cell.

  • Have an awesome butterfly exhibit! The price is fair for what they have to offer! A lot of fun for kids of all ages, they do have a subway, frozen yogurt and a gift shop. You can bring snacks and eat them downstairs in the food court but there's no eating in the exhibits. There is an elevator for anyone who can't walk up the stairs.

  • Great educational entertainment for children. I recommend to buy the membership here, it will pay of after few visits. There are about 7 levels in the building. Main level mainly for toddlers, it seems that the higher the level the advanced the exhibits are. Parking is easy since the adjacent parking lot garage is connected to the building. From the highest floor you can see the beautiful river that are across the building. Last time I went, there is a rooftop garden open. You could also book a party here. There is an IMAX theatre too here in which I believe you have to pay extra. Cafeteria is also available in the building. There is a giant piano tile that the kids could play with. It is a great fun while at the same time very educational.

  • Love the science center, its a wonderful learning experience however I feel like theirs too much going on and all schools being there all at once takes away from the time of purpose for kids to experience the exhibits. Alot of the kids that are there do not know how to give others a chance. Maybe the chaperones that are with them need to be more attentive or actually have someone from the science center take them floor by floor so they can really have the experience they deserve and benefit from the exhibits.
