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."

"Its a time for us to come enjoy ourselves with the entire family and experience all the fun activities"

"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.)"
