Science Center of Iowa
When it first opened it doors in 1970, the Science Center of Iowa was among the first interactive science museums in the world. It engaged the community with hands-on exhibits and programs. In 2005, the center moved to its 110,00-square-foot downtown location, where it fills its halls with a variety of experience platforms, each demonstrating different scientific principles. Build and launch a rocket in When Things Get Moving, learn about Iowa's native animals in What On Earth?, and explore the night sky in the Star Theater planetarium. A favorite of SCI's youngest visitors, Small Discoveries exhibit features features a farm-to-table theme with a market and kitchen for interactive play. For the “full experience”, catch a film in the six-story Blank IMAX Dome Theater.
