Without science, mankind would not have science classes or T-shirts that read, "I am currently enrolled in science classes." Become grateful for the existence of science with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get a fun pack, which includes four general-admission tickets to McWane Science Center on 19th Street (up to a $48 value, tax included in pricing).

Featuring interactive science exhibits, an aquarium, and an IMAX theater, McWane Science Center is a state-of-the-art museum designed to instill the love for learning in people of all ages. Free to explore all four levels of the science center, museum-goers can check out hands-on displays such as the Shark and Ray Touch Tank, where bonnethead sharks, white-spotted bamboo sharks, Atlantic stingrays, and cownose rays rule the waters with iron fins. Or explore the great outdoors, including birds, bugs, and animal noises, inside with NatureScope. Indecisive tourists can avail themselves of The Adventures of Mr. Potato Head, a traveling exhibit in which Mr. Potato Head leads children and their families on archaeological digs, space excursions, and jungle safaris.

Housed in the historic Loveman’s department-store building, McWane Science Center has been sharing fascinating displays and a lineup of daily science demonstrations for more than a decade. Peer into an anti-gravity mirror, take a nap on a bed of nails, or flex your brainwave muscles with a rousing game of mindball.

McWane Science Center received 4.5 stars from both Yahoo! Locals and LilaGuides, with a four-star rating from TripAdvisors:

McWane Science Center

Tiny hands sift through sand to find ancient fossils, with no archaeologists in sight. But these aren’t scenes from a zany summer movie about all the adults disappearing: they're snapshots of the McWane Science Center, whose dozens of fun, interactive exhibits enliven science.

Notable exhibits include a collection of Alabama dinosaur skeletons that help us understand what life was like in the state millions of years ago. An aquarium area boasts a Shark & Ray Touch Tank, delighting visitors with an aquatic petting zoo. Interactive contraptions such as the pulley chair lift—which lets kids learn about simple machines as they hoist themselves aloft—convey abstract concepts with fun activities.

Lots of things to do with my children, even the 18 month old! The Itty Bitty Magic City was phenomenol and we spent a good bit of our time in this area because there was so much to do!
