Great little museum. We had a lot of fun here. Definitely recommend checking it out. This is great for kids or adults, and a perfect rainy day option.

Kids and I totally enjoyed visiting this museum, 2 4-D movies and candy shop. Kids wanted to go through the warp tunnel again and again. We played the laser race, too!

We stopped by on the last day of our vacation. We found it quite reasonable in price. $46 for 2 people.. It includes the museum/ laser vault/atomic tag and 4d movie.. Which I have to say was truly amazing.. 3d movie with a twist it snows, rains and the wind blows.. If you like the really strange or just odd it's all here.. Very small gift shop..Not much there. We enjoyed walking thru it and the museum takes about 30-45mins depending on the the games and how you are.. (I have to read the plaques and look at it all.. Lol )

What goes on in the 4D Theater?
We have two different shows running in our theater. They alternate every half hour starting one hour after we open. The shows are similar to an amusement park ride, only the chairs do not move so no one gets tossed around. Each show is about 15 minutes long. You watch them with 3D glasses while we spray you with air and water, tickle your legs and several other surprises. The shows themselves are appropriate for all ages, although sometimes small children are scared of the dinosaurs.
