It was our family of four, no teens. This place is the best! The aquarium is well laid out. You have to see the fishing cats and the penguins. My son's favorite is Bonecrusher the Alligator Snapping Tortoise. The zoo is out back and it is a leisurely walk. Check the the Red Pandas and the petting zoo. It was a lot of fun.

Awesome venue with lots to look at! I love the new Octopus and visiting with all the animals. Great event place for large groups, the company I work with held a night there for us and invited all of the families, with food, music and entertainment along with the ropes course and of course the animals!!

Went to NC for vacation and prior to leaving checked TripAdvisor for activities and this one was on the list. It was a fun day learning about different animals, weather, human body and more. One of the exhibits was under construction but felt we saw most of it regardless. We did pay an additional small fee to watch the movie Dinosaurs At Dusk and was disappointed. Felt it could have been full of more dino screen time and the story line wasn't great in terms of the way it transpired. On hot days it would be best to have more water available to the petting zoo animals as we didn't see any buckets in the enclosure. There was one in a different area but not in the shade where the animals were.
Good time was had by us.

The Greensboro Science Center is top-notch! The meer-kats are cool. The outdoor animals are neat. The aquarium has some cool hands on parts.

We visited and joined the Greensboro Science Center this Spring. We have not been in 15 years. The GSC is an amazing place for young and old alike. Our 15 month old grandson loved the penguins and the barn area.
