What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"WE LOVE MCWANE CENTER!! GREAT WAY TO GIVE KIDS AN INTRO TO SCIENCE & something nice for a family outing"

"A comfortable environment (indoor- no rain, heat/cold to contend with) that my kids really enjoy and I can approve of as a educational and enriching experience."

"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!"
