Powerhouse Science Center Reviews & Ratings

  • Hadn't been there since the kids were in elementary and Junior High School. It was great seeing some of the things I remembered and some of the things that I didn't. Now that we have phones that are used to take pictures, so being able to take pictures of the exhibits was great and putting myself in those pictures was also great. It was just a fun day for me.

  • A great time for families interested in science. We had a fun few hours on a Sunday here and were able to complete the scavenger hunt and see the planetarium in 2 1/2 hours. The staff really seem to care about educating the patrons. It is so refreshing to see such a positive attitude. The venue is a bit small but they have many rooms to keep young children occupied. I think about 5 to 10 is about the best ages for this trip.

  • Fantastic time spent! Great for young kids, so many hands on activities and the planetarium show was informative in a kids-friendly way.

  • Great place to take the kids to learn and have fun, had to fight the kids to go home.

  • We took our 3 children there, they are 5, 7 & 9. My son loves anything Science (my oldest), so he had a blast. So did my girls. They explored everything and they especially loved the rocket ship. They pretended they were in space and had a blast. When we came into the building, the kids got a task sheet and a pencil. So they were kept busy looking at stations and writing down the answers to the questions. We all learned something new that day. This wasn't really a place for us to spend a full day. We stayed maybe 2 hours. There's also a planetarium that is included with your ticket
