Comments about Smart Destinations Discovery Science Center:

We initially went there for my younger children but I was so happy to see my teenage boys also enjoying themselves. There are so many cool activities to do and it brings the whole family together. Staff was professional and helpful w/ my younger children. We would go back in a second.
