What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"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."

"It is an educational place to hang out when it is to hot or to wet to go outside."

"My daughter loves to go to the McWane Center because she thinks it is fun.  I love it because she learns something new every time she goes.  It is a jewel in the Birmingham area for family education and entertainment!"
