What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"A great place for me to have some good quality time with my family"

"My children love it....they call it the brain center...LOL"

"McWane is an important part of children’s education. It allows us to explore science with them in visual and hands-on ways that we otherwise could not. Science is fun in this house, thanks to the help of McWane Science center. It is a reward, and a place our children always ask to visit. Pairing fun with learning is what you do, and we embrace that philosophy."
