  • This place is the coolest spot in Colorado springs we took the kids and they were in complete aww. Everyone on staff was very knowledgeable and did hesitate to answer any questions you had. Would 100% recommend stopping by. We went in the day time and also this evening they had a event going on in the parking lot and there were a bunch of people with telescopes letting people look through them such an amazing experience we went ahead and purchased a membership and can't wait to return
  • This place is surprisingly fun. I've only been twice, very quiet so you can spend a long time at the interactive exhibits. The best part is the Mars rover you can program! They have a new big blue block building area for the little kids which my 3-year-old stayed at for a long time since the tech stuff was a bit too complicated for him.
