Sad a science place would try to force children to wear an unscientific face covering

So I always like this place. My kid loves coming to this place but your employee behavior today was horrible I just walk in looking to spend a good time with my kid since it was raining. As I walked in I just ask are you guys open the lady said something I could not understand and before I said something she said you have nothing to do in here wow in front of my kid. She pretty much kicked us out. I just said I’m sorry and Walked away. thanks for the experience anyway

Great park! The playground is enormous. I had a blast playing with my kids and running after them. They can spend hours there playing around, and they also have misters that the kids can get wet in and keep cool. Just bring a bathing suit, towel and change of clothes for the kids. They also have really nice electronic games there (not the kind you plug in to the TV). The museum part is also free, and there is allot of info there for a good time. But there is no food except for what is in the vending machine. All in all, kids love it and so do I. Have gone there numerous times and will go more.
