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."

"The kids always say "that was the best day ever!"  Even if we go 2 days in a row--they still find interesting things to play with and learn about.  I like the new nature center--the bug magnifier & decomposition chamber are neat."

"A source of educational fun for not only our children but us as well. It also makes a great way to spend a rainy day."
