SciTech Museum Aurora
Where are we going today?
There is something so fun for kids when they find a museum where they can experiment, play, create and have a great time. There is also some special when parents find a place where kids can learn as they play.
Welcome to the SciTech Museum in Aurora, Illinois!
The SciTech museum is an edu-tainment experience were kids are encouraged to touch and try the more than 200 exhibits that teach science, space exploration, math, weather, electricity, green energy, light and sound, physics and so much more!
Each exhibit teaches them something new, and develops their senses and skills. They can visit "Dorothy" the storm chasing vehicle, or get inside the tornado itself! Have you ever been in a giant bubble? You can at SciTech Museum!
Kids can get onto the news, or ride suspended bicycle on a rope. Parents, you better watch out because there is an exhibit where they can life you quite easily on the fulcrum swing and so much more!
The SciTech Museum is the perfect size to enjoy, whilst having a view of your children. Parents can relax at the internet cafe, or bring your group and use the lunchroom and schedule your own hands on show and experiments with our crazy professors! The SciTech musical theatre performs shows daily for all museum goers as well.
The SciTech Discovery Preschool is the only STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) based preschool in Illinois and one of only two in the country. Not bad!
Fun, learning, excitement, developing, and creativity - all at SciTech Museum!
