The McWane Science Center has four floors of fun, educational exhibits including a dig pit, a weather lab, an optical illusions gallery, an air cannon, and a giant piano.
Current special exhibits include Race: Are We So Different?, running until September 2. Developed by the American Anthropological Association, the touring exhibition considers biological, cultural, and historical perspectives as it explores race in America. Along the way, scientific findings explain differences in human appearance while also challenging the fundamental concept of race.

About 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.
