What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"Just moved back to the area and my visit was with grandson school field trip. My first visit in 10+ years and had a blast. Hope to come back with grandkids again. It's a little pricey for a fixed income but would still love to try."

"We enjoyed our visit very much.  As our first visit to McWane we took a risk buying a large family membership.  My entire family, myself included, had a blast.  I love having a local place to take the kids, enjoy ourselves and learn about so many cool, important topics."

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