Lots to do and see! We started in the aquarium, the coral was gorgeous, the shark tank was cool, the walls were educational and interactive, and sting ray's were fun! We grabbed a snack and headed to the dinosaur room, very cool display. The health...More

My family and I visited the center on Monday, 02/24/14 and while we were very pleased with the Sue exhibit and movie, we were distressed after visiting the sciquarium. The putrid smell hits you as you first enter and is prevalent throughout the entire area....More

We had a great time with our 2 granddaughters(2 and 4). There were so many things to do and see. Many interactive displays and shows. Just a great place to take kids

We have been to the science center on multiple occasions, and continue to learn new things every time we go. A melding together of aquarium, zoo, static scientific exhibits and learning centers. Great for people of all ages, but especially great for kids.

Went with 2 teenage boys and everyone had a good time. Wish the tree course wasn't so expensive- only complaint I really have. Outside zoo slightly disappointed because the tigers weren't there and a few other animals we wanted to see the most weren't there!...More

I visited the Greensboro Science Center with a school group of about 100 kindergarten students. The GSC was very welcoming and well organized for accommodating a group of this size. We visited the outdoor animal exhibits first, so we could see them before the day...More
