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!

We took our almost two year old twins and had a blast. They would like it even more as they get older, but itty bitty magic city was so much fun for them. Highly recommend for little kids up to young teens.
