If you ever have the chance to go to the Expolatorium, jump at it. It's one of the coolest places you've ever seen, no matter what your age.
Though I'm not realy sure why, or when, they started calling it a "museum".

If they could truly (and not a pale comparison)
duplicate that here, it would be a major regional attraction, at the theme park level.
The Exploratorium in San Francisco is an actual vacation destination.

That's what would bring the sized crowds to Schenectady that we need, not another gin mill.

What great news!

Yes, of course I (and my family) will make an attempt to see the Exploratorium Museum when it's up and running.

I've been to the Exploratorium in SF. It's spectacular. All grown-ups and of course the children will absolutely love the experience when it comes here.

For 'out of towners' -- It's worth the trip to Schenectady to see it when it arrives. You will not be disappointed. It's a hands-on learning experience for young and old.

What a win-win-win for the capital district!
