The center is mostly for children and serves as an interactive center for them to learn about science basics. They have 300 hands on activities in 40,000 SF area galleries. There also is an IMAX theater holding 285 visitors. The center overall is about 120,000SF, but a lot not available for use. There also has been construction since 2006m, and it looks closed for the most part.
WE did not go in because I am not one to participate in interactive, and the cost is a smacking $12, plus $8 for IMAX. That is steep for what I envisioned as about one hour tour.

Address: 5th Street
Directions: By corners of 7th and Washington Sts in Heritage Square
