What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"It means someplace fun and educational for the whole family. It means someplace COOL and INDOORS on hot days and WARM and INDOORS on cold days. It means making new friends to my daughter with autism. It means finding new ways to safely get lost for my three year old son. (I lose him at least twice per visit, but he always comes back unharmed. This was the first visit that the exhibit hall entry security guard didn't get to know him on sight due to multiple escape efforts.)"

"We keep coming back to McWane because it is a great place for family time and because there is something for children AND adults to enjoy!"

"The kids always say "that was the best day ever!"  Even if we go 2 days in a row--they still find interesting things to play with and learn about.  I like the new nature center--the bug magnifier & decomposition chamber are neat."
