What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"It means a great deal. We come often and bring friends. It is a great outing for myself and my young children and each time is a new experience."

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

"McWane Science Center means that my child will have a fun, safe place to play - no matter the weather outside. Also, that he will grow up learning about science and other things that he might not learn about at such a young age. It's great to have a place like this in our area!"
