The volunteers were very helpful especially a person named Kathlyn (not so sure if I spelled the name right). She had helped so patiently on one of the children I brought with me that day. I really appreciate the work of the volunteers.

My kids had a blast. We will definitely be signing up as members to Explorit now that I know how fun and educating it is.

I didn't know about Explorit before I saw the Groupon because I don't live in Davis but I was picturing something bigger than what it was. There was nothing wrong with it- staff was friendly and the kids liked it but it wasnt something i would make the hour drive for again.

We didn't even know about Explorit Science Center until we saw it on Groupon. We took our 2 grandsons and had a great afternoon.

At first I thought my son would think he was too "old" for the activities there (he's 12). But, everything is hand's on - great for his interactive learning style! - & the docents there were great about explaining the exhibits to him without being pushy. I was pleased about the calm, laid-back attitude everyone had there. We spent 2 hours there & my boy USED HIS IMAGINATION!

It was not what I expected. Kind of small with very limited stations. My kids found themselves bored after being there for 45 minutes.

From Our Editors

A ball python, bearded dragons, and three types of cockroaches have made their homes at Explorit Science Center, educating guests in an exhibit dubbed the Animal Alcove. Since 1982, the center has fostered curiosity about science and nature with hands-on exhibits like this, rather than by feeding children dry textbooks or encouraging them merely to imagine how loud the sound is when trees walk. About 55,000 people visit the center each year, enhancing their intellectual development at the miniature zoo and rotating exhibits that explore the role of science in both commonplace and whimsical natural phenomena. One popular exhibit, for example, took visitors through the local agricultural process, the interconnections between agriculture and weather, and each meal’s journey from the farm to the plate. Visitors can discover further factoids at Explorit's science lecture series, and youngsters can enroll in the center’s science-themed summer camps.
