What our visitors are saying about McWane Science Center

"Love it! Our kids favorite activity in Birmingham!"

"An awesome way our youth can learn, explore and experience science at their own level.  When we first began our son was 4 and just learning to read and now that he is 5 and can read much more the exhibits are becoming more interactive for him and his interests are peaking...we LOVE the McWane!!!"

"Its a great place to spend the day, learning AND having a blast.  We always learn something new and different.  Our kids love being there.  Too bad we live in Montgomery or we would visit much more often."
