What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"Our grandchildren live in Huntsville.  Part of the anticipation of coming to Nana and Papa's is knowing we will visit the McWane Center."

"Great place to go anytime, even a horrible rainy day or extra temps, because we never have to walk outside.  Straight from our garage to the parking deck!"

"This was our first time purchasing a membership.  We will be back often.  The kids loved it and it's great to have a place to go where they get excited to learn.  Keep up the good work!"
