See it if You are really into gadgets and how they work or have some young kids you want to entertain. Very fun, hands on learning. I learned things.

Don't see it if You don’t want to be surrounded by children. This is like a child’s birthday party atmosphere rather than theatre.

Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Funny, Quirky, Slow

See it if you have children to entertain. The latest in this science based series invites the audience to recognize themselves as potential inventors.

Don't see it if parental photo ops annoy you. While children delight in participating, adults behave badly holding up cell phones to record them in action

Intelligent, Curious, Not a show, Poorly designed, Thought-provoking

See it if you are curious about old inventions (duh), but don't expect a show in any sense of the word. No flow, no transitions, no story.

Don't see it if you aren't up for a poorly designed show. This isn't a show in any sense of the word. A number of old inventions are shown and discussed. Read more
