What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"We come here after school as a fun treat about once a week.  We love it!  My boys are always excited to go for a visit, and always very sad to leave.  I love the openness of the upper floor for the little ones to run and play.  It is our favorite indoor place to go in Birmingham."

"The Center is a fabulous place to allow my child's learning experience to grow. Each time we visit, she notices something new to her that keeps her fascinated."

"We absolutely LOVE coming to McWane! We visit at least once every two weeks, if not more often. My kids (aged 3 and 2) beg me every week to come! Thanks so much for providing a safe, fun learning environment for us!"
