Has anyone been to this and has input. Im sure my kids will love it. Almost 7yrs old and 4yr old.
About how long is needed to go through this place?
Is it worth it to do the movie also?
Thanxs!

i used to live outside of cleveland when i was a kid and the science center was one of my favorite things. we went several times on school trips, probably when i was between ages 9-12 yrs.
i don't remember how long we would spend there but it was usually never enough time to go through everything - though when at a younger age too many exhibits can be overwhelming.

the omnimax theater aspect of it was totally awesome and i think something anyone of any age could enjoy. most of the documentaries are about 45 minutes which i think tries to be not too long for the young ones, but where you get enough info and material to be worth paying for.
just in case you need it, they show what's playing and when here: http://www.greatscience.com/visit/omnimax.php

so yeah. haha. if you go, i hope you all have fun.
