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 216-seat Blank IMAX Dome Theater, which features a six-story dome-shaped screen that surrounds your field of view and a 12,000-watt digital surround sound system that lets you hear everything from a tiny drop of rain to a huge clap of thunder with crystal clarity.

Customer Reviews

The kids had a great time and the programs (or "shows") that were offered were really entertaining and interesting!.

Great place for kids to be educated while being entertained. This is a great place for families to interact together. I wish we would have had time for the I Max theater.

We had a group of 16 ages 3-83 and everyone enjoyed their time at the Science Center. I would definitely recommend the Science Center.
