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."

"We love being members! It is a huge asset to both Birmingham and its kids!"

"McWane is a wonderful place to spend the afternoon with my daughter.  She loves the Just Mice Size play area.  Its a great alternative to the playground during extremely cold or warm weather.  She also loves the aquarium downstairs.  We always have to visit the eel and the jellyfish."
