Very enjoyable especially for kids between say 7 and 10. even older if your kid is very curious about the world. Most displays work but a few can be worn out. Also keep an eye out for special events that they host.

We visited the Sci-Bono Centre last year sometime. It was very interesting and full of information about the human body. All lifesize exhibits. You need about 2 hours to look around at all the exhibits.
