    2009-09-14I went to Tommy Bartlett's Exploratory this past year with my brother. The place kept you quite busy and interested in trying everyone of the hands on experiments b4 you would leave to another area. Everything was like a science experiment yet so fun. A great idea for families to enjoy. Tottally worth the money. The Russian Mir Space Station was a favorite of ours to see. Especially since there were only three ever made.

    2009-03-10Cant believe its out of this world just like Space Camp! We brought our kids there every year so wild in there. I love the stars in this hallway and the mirrors that move in different directions. And the camera you take a pose and snap the picture is taken and see your creation! Want a fun place to get information and see the Mior Spacestation! Cant belive its real! Thanks The Heidens and The Taylors summer of 2008
