What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"We feel very fortunate to have the McWane Science Center nearby to expose our children to the world of science.  They have so much fun learning about the world around them in interactive realistic play situations!  Personally, I really love the safe, comfortable environment where I can relax and let them go knowing that they are learning as they play!"

"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."

"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."
