$16 for Four Science-Museum Visits ($32 Value)
From now until Sunday, June 3, Science Central visitors explore an edifying Treasure! exhibit, which immerses guests in the opulent history of riches and treasure hunting. Then from Tuesday, June 19, through Sunday, September 2, the Mars in 3-D! exhibit showcases giant photographs of Mars’s surface taken by the European Space Agency’s Mars Express probe and interstellar paparazzi. The museum’s permanent exhibits expose young learners to oceanic creatures, mammoth mastodons, and the science of meteorology. The passes do not need to be redeemed all in one visit.
Though Science Central, a non-profit organization, first opened its doors in 1995, the facility touts a history that dates back to its opening in 1929 as the city’s light and power plant. Now the building illuminates minds instead of bulbs, with 32,000 square feet of exhibit space, a rotating schedule of traveling exhibitions, three classrooms, and a demonstration theater. Budding minds venture through horizon-broadening exhibits that cover diverse scientific areas such as the human body and meteorology.
