What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"I am a teacher, so I visit the Center quite often. But, Spring break was my two sons first time visiting, they had a blast!!! We are currently making plans to reserve April 2nd for a birthday party."

"We have visited twice since March. We plan to come as often as we can - we live about 90 miles away. I have two boys and the fact that they are learning something with each exhibit AND most are interactive to keep them busy, makes it an enjoyable experience for all of us."

"We love that there is a science museum here in Birmingham. We visit all the time and we love coming, even though we know what some of the exhibits are. Thank you for being there!"
