What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"It is somewhere my kiddies can have so much fun without them realizing that they are actually learning. When my four year old asked me about heart rate from the wheelchair and monitor experiment once we got home I was just absolutely enthralled that she retained something we saw and discussed."

"We come here after school as a fun treat about once a week.  We love it!  My boys are always excited to go for a visit, and always very sad to leave.  I love the openness of the upper floor for the little ones to run and play.  It is our favorite indoor place to go in Birmingham."

"I think it is a great place for my child to learn and interact with other kids. When he gets older I can't wait to send him to the day camp."
