Great Lakes Science Center - Downtown: $50 for a Family Plus Membership to the Great Lakes Science Center

Science can be a frightening word, particularly when it's listed under "cause of death" and followed by three exclamation marks. Overcome your fear of knowledge with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a Family Plus membership to the Great Lakes Science Center (a $100 value).

A bastion of a posteriori presentation and empirical exhibitions, the Great Lakes Science Center is committed to bringing the scientific method to every merman in Lake Erie. Family Plus Membership allows household admission to the Science Center, which consists of two primary members, up to six children or grandchildren under the age of 18, and two guest members. Admission is also good for the nearby steamship William Mather (open in the summer) and more than 250 other science centers nationwide. Members also receive two free Omnimax tickets and a one-time parking pass (a $6 value). The NASA Glenn Visitor Center brings more than 50 astronautical artifacts and interactive exhibits Earth-side, including the 1973 Skylab 3 Command Module, which traveled to the Skylab Space Station and back. The domed Omnimax theater uses the largest projector model ever made to awe eyes with 70mm educational films, such as the immersive Imax Under the Sea, the popular volcano retrospective Ring of Fire, and the slightly less popular Enter the Sinus. The popular Polymer Funhouse impresses visitors 7 years old or younger with a ball pit, interactive water exhibits, and a lecture series on quantum mechanics.

  • The Indoor Tornado, Bridge of Fire, and dozens of other exhibits bring to life science lessons about the environment, technology, and natural forces. – ParentsConnect
  • My 3 kids love the Science center. There are so many hands on activities. We have been to several science centers that had many exhibits broken or in bad shape, but Cleveland keeps their exhibits in good order. – 5frys, TripAdvisor

Great Lakes Science Center

A 150-foot wind turbine heralds the entryway of Great Lakes Science Center. Combined with a 300-foot solar canopy, the turbine supplies 6% of the museum's power but also serves another purpose: to drive home the science center's commitment to research, education, and scientific discovery. Inside the Alternative Energy exhibit, visitors can touch their fingertips to a kiosk that displays real-time and historical data on energy consumption. Or, at the Steamship William G. Mather, visitors can explore a four-story engine room that once propelled the 618-foot flagship. After exploring the lunar lander models and flight simulators of the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, visitors can track moon dust to the Omnimax Theater and absorb scientific knowledge through 11,600 watts of digital sound.

In addition to presenting exhibits to more than 300,000 visitors annually, the science center leads the charge on science education. Onsite scientists organize space and curriculum for freshmen in the Cleveland metropolitan school district's inaugural STEM high school. The school teaches in a project-based learning environment where students are encouraged to delve into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
