The Lake Erie Nature and Science Center is a staple of the Bay Village community and also the greater Cleveland community. Nestled in the Huntington Woods Metro Park the center features a wide array of animals easily accessible with docents and other volunteers to enhance your visit.

While small, it was fun to see the animal exhibits. We didn't go to the planetarium (there was a fee for that, otherwise the center is free). It's right by the Huntington Reservation and I was happily surprised that there is a .1 mile trail right outside (Bunny Trail) that even our toddler could walk for his first hiking experience.

By far one of the most under-rated spots in Cleveland. Just 20 min. from down town in Bay (where I live) - this is one of my family's favorite spots to go. It's not huge, but offers a lot of interesting things to see and do. My daughter loves going here and seeing all the animals. (she loves the turtles... More

I enjoyed seeing and learning about the local wildlife. It is a great place for children. The live animal displays, especially the snakes, are interesting.

Didn't know this was here but followed the signs from Lakeside and there it was. The facilities looked well maintained and the exhibits were interesting. Looks like a good place for kids but enjoyable for all ages.

My children and I stumbled upon this little nature center and had an unexpected ball. There was a hollowed log for the kids to crawl through and animals outside to peer at depending on the time you visit. Outside also has some walking trails and climbing opportunities. Call for activity schedules.

What a transformation since my early days at "Bay Science Center"! Innovative programs, fantastic staff and several great animal exhibits both indoors and outdoors create an educational, hands-on experience for kiddos and adults alike. Well worth the visit - and FREE!

Just a neat little center that has several different types of experiences for kids to get acquainted with nature. Our grandson just enjoyed being that close to animals. Does not take a lot of time to see but worth the visit.
