What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"We love the changing exhibits; the kids love to come and play there. They loved the new Imagination Station, especially the blocks, bubble area, maze, and zip line."

"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."

"Somewhere safe, fun and educational that children of all ages can enjoy. From my two year old to my teen they all consider McWane a great place to go. Love special displays for the holidays."
