This place is very interactive, educational, and provides a large variety of exhibits. I have two elementary age children and they love coming here. Very enjoyable!

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.

The Greensboro Science is more than a science center - it is a zoo & an aquarium. Great experience for the money. Lots of animals and sea life. Grounds are really nice -Meerkat Cafe has good food at a reasonable price (& you can bring in outside food!)

Great place to visit!

My wife and I took our tween niece and nephew here as something to do when they visited for the summer. I honestly expected some dinky little joint with a few sad exhibits - boy, was I surprised!

This is a first-class science center and museum. It isn’t in the same class as the Smithsonian museums, but it is just one notch below, which is pretty impressive for a place the size of Greensboro.

The whole family had a great time, and I, being the science nerd of the bunch, was walking on clouds by the time it was time to leave. I highly recommend the Center: you’ll have a Smithsonian-type experience without sitting in 3 hours of DC gridlock traffic.
