What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"It is an outing I can feel good about for several reasons. My children are encouraged to interact, ask questions, get answers and be creative. We're out of the elements (summer and winter) in a safe environment. The family membership value is unbeatable!"

"We love that there is a science museum here in Birmingham. We visit all the time and we love coming, even though we know what some of the exhibits are. Thank you for being there!"

"McWane Science Center means  knowledge because every time we go there we learn something new."
