What is there to do?

The Connecticut Science Center makes science and learning REALLY fun for kids! In fact, they will be having such a great time playing, and exploring, and creating, that they might not even realize they ARE learning!

The Connecticut Science Center has over 150 fantastic hands-on exhibits, as well as a state of the art 3D digital theatre, AND daily programs and events!

Each of the exhibits are designed for kids to learn something unique, and specific, to really enhance their experience at the museum. Kids can learn all about forensics, and physics, astronomy and even geology. They literally will have science at their fingertips!

The Connecticut Science Center has both permanent, and traveling, exhibits, so there will be something new every time to go back!

The permanent exhibits will be sure to engage kids. For those creative minds under 7 years, KidSpace is perfect. They can experiment with swirling water, play with soft large-scale blocks and mess around with colorful balls. 

Kids can design and test a heli-flyer in Forces in Motion, and even create a square wheeled car! They can see themselves in a 360 degree at Sight and Sound, and journey across the galaxy without every leaving the science center in Exploring Space!

From learning all about the importance of staying healthy, to building robots from LEGO and discovering ways to stay green, the Connecticut Science Center exhibits really do have something for ALL kids!

Don't forget about the fun programs they have too, such as staying OVERNIGHT in the museum itself - how much fun does that sound!

Great fun for the whole family in Hartford!
