Sci Port should be a good place for kids. It is a decent outing. Sometimes the IMAX shows some decent shows. Sometimes, horrible shows are shown instead for up to 10 bucks a pop. As far as the actual science area of sci port goes, don't expect too much. It's nice, but judging from the outside it appears as though it is Disney World, but what you find is the county fair. From a visitor's perspective, it appears to be run sloppy and some of the employees do not seem like the best choice to be teaching other science. Nevertheless, it is a decent outing.
