We had never heard of the science factory until groupon. It was a lot smaller than I expected, but it was still fun and educational for the kids. If we lived closer we would definitely go back.

Apparently the groupon was only for new members and since i had joined before (almost two years ago!!) I could not redeem it. Ended up giving it away. Now iam out thirty dollars!! Really bummed about that.

What a great place! I brought two children and all three of us had a blast - and we ALL learned things. There's great signage, but it was helpful to have someone around who could explain the science behind some of the exhibits. Kudos!

Its not very big but does provide an hour or two of fun entertainment for the kids. We particularly liked the planetarium .

Our 4 year old loved it, and we stayed there for about 3 hours. She enjoyed the movie although she did cover her eyes from Medusa. She was a bit scary for this age group.

This poor little Science Factory is in major need of some financial assistance. The limited number of exhibits are not all working, nor are they very interesting. The equipment used in the planetarium to show films needs to be replaced. Please do some fundraising. Across the street, Mr Knight has helped to provided an $80 million renovation, yet the Science Factory, a very important educational tool for children, is running on one leg.

The exibits were pretty unnentertaining. The staff was snooty. My 6 yr old daughter was bored and wanted to leave its also been the same Noise exibit all year. Real dissapointment. Would have rather drove to OMSI. BUT FOR 7 DOLLARS IT WAS 20 WASTED MINUTES

From Our Editors

Through exhibits that explore everything from astronomy and physics to biology and paleontology, the Science Factory inspires a lifelong love of science in children as well as adults. Above all else, the nonprofit embraces a motto of "please touch," creating safe, engaging opportunities for children to act on their curiosity and gain insight into the principles underlying scientific and technological theories.

The Exploration Dome exemplifies the immersive nature of the Museum, surrounding audiences with a full-dome screen that displays digital and live-action films. These educational features can take guests to virtually any location in the world and beyond, including the heart of the Borneo rainforest, the depths of prehistoric oceans, the edge of our galaxy's super-massive black hole, and a universe where popcorn kernels never get stuck in your teeth. Permanent exhibits—including a feature on responsible recycling as well as a terrarium of lizards, frogs, and plants, complete with Renegade, the Museum's resident iguana—explore topics in more depth, complementing both the Exploration Dome’s videos and an ever-changing roster of special attractions.
