McWane center is a great center for families. It’s a great teaching location and has many sculptures and machines to look at and play with. I went when they had the human body exhibit up. It was great.

They have a lot to offer, from an IMAX theatre that will probably be one biggest one you ever step foot in, to a shark tank on the bottom floor. They always have something going on that you're sure to enjoy

My husband, our two young boys and I had a great time! I loved the animation in the dinosaur exhibit. My kids had a blast with the interactive exhibits. It rained the day we visited, so it was the perfect rainy day activity. We will recommend this museum and visit, again.
