Fodor's Review

You're bound to see excited kids running up to the dozens of interactive exhibits here that illustrate the relevance of science to everyday life. Clustered in different "worlds," the center keeps young guests busy for hours. They can design their own buildings and learn how to make them earthquake-proof; watch Tess, the dramatic, 50-foot animatronic star of the exhibit "Body Works," demonstrate how the body's organs work together; and ride a bike across a trapeze wire three stories high in the air. One of the exhibits in the Air & Space section shows how astronauts Pete Conrad and Dick Gordon made it to outer space in the Gemini 11 capsule in 1966; also here is NASA's massive space shuttle Endeavor, for which a timed ticket is needed to visit. The IMAX theater screens science-related large-format films.
