What is there to do?

It's science funindoors and out at Sciencenter! Sciencenter is filled with 250 hands-on exhibits that kids can climb, splash, think, build and bounce their way around as they enjoy full-body science fun.

From astronomy to zoology, the Sciencenter offers something special for all kids, no matter their age, interests or learning ability!

All of the exhibits cover a range of themes and principles including elemental play, kinetic energy machines, interactive structures and constructions, musical equipment, fun math challenges and so very much more.

Kids can explore the galaxy and beyond in the Mars and Sun exhibition! They can take an interactive flight over the moon, or visit astronomical objects!

For those smaller hands, littler bodies and inquisitive minds under 4 years, the Curiosity Corner is a vibrant, safe environment complete with water table, air station, activity table and more!

Kids can learn all about the human body in the Health & Wellness section, or those animal lovers in the family will LOVE the tidepool touch tank with hermit crabs, sea stars and more! 

On those sunny days, the Science Playground is always popular! Open April to November, kids can enjoy this multi-level playground with a number of science exhibits to keep them entertained!

Did we mention there is Mini-Golf too? Yep! With a science theme at every hole, it's mini golf fun AND learning all wrapped up in one!

Science IS fun at the Sciencenter, where kids might not even realize they are learning! So kids, what will you explore today?
