The New Science Center

Wow! That is all I can say about the new Science Center. Not Wow in a good way. Yes, when you drive by and see the building, it looks nice. That's as far as it goes. We paid $12/a person for the IMAX movie and for the science exhibits. The IMAX theater was nice. The sound system was sweet......but for a movie called "The Living Sea", there wasn't to much footage of the sea. Maybe a different movie could have made this experience better, so I can't judge too much yet. As for the rest of the Science Center............ Don't waste your time or money. Half of the exhibits were already broken and not working (it has only been open a month?), plus there was nothing high tech about the exhibits. There were some freaky cardboard cutouts of kids, and I found out what a heartbeat sounds like (as if I didn't know?!). The new cafe featured Pizza Hut pizza and popcorn, so nothing too fancy. Don't waste your time on the gift shop either, unless you want some over priced sea monkeys. Bottom line is.......I was hoping this would be a cool new place to go in Central Iowa. What I found.......Just another waste of time and money!!!!!!!
