What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"Our grandchildren live in Huntsville.  Part of the anticipation of coming to Nana and Papa's is knowing we will visit the McWane Center."

"It is our rainy-day go-to place!  We sometimes even just drop in for an hour when we have the time, making our membership totally worthwhile.  It may be too soon to tell, but we hope we are instilling a life-long love of learning and science/nature in our young son.  Thank you, McWane!"

"My kids love to go to the McWane center! I think my 9 year old asks me to go at least once a week"
