Living Arts & Science Center Reviews & Ratings
I do yoga here with Cindy Reed, she owns the Massage and Yoga studio in Dudley square. I love her, I love the yoga. And I love the yoga here on Sunday mornings at 10am. $5 a class. The Living Arts venue is super supportive, and they offer So Many Neat things to do! For kids and adults. Check them out for sure!
I took my two toddlers after reading so many great reviews. We were very disappointed. I appreciated the free admission but honestly would not have paid to go in. There was a play room that had some legos, blocks and play dough. It was dirty and a mess and basically toys we have at home. There were two rooms that had interactive displays. However we couldn’t figure out what any of the buttons or switches did as there were no directions and nothing happened. My kids enjoy pushing buttons so atleast they were amused for a few minutes. They had some animals in tanks that we enjoyed looking at. Other than that I’m confused as to why this is considered a science museum. There was some children’s art work on the walls. They have classes and camps you can take your kids to, maybe that’s a better experience. I’ve been to many wonderful children’s science museums and this was disappointing but that’s what you get for free admission. Perhaps money should have been spent on interactive displays for children to enjoy instead of a renovated building.
I had the pleasure of visit it when I was a child. I enjoyed it alot.
It's very educational for the children's and fun
Great place to see and experience art!
