We have membership in Science Central. Some guests have mentioned broken displays. It is true that some of the displays are broken or, being mechanical, not that exciting compared to other science or children's museums. The museum is located in an old power and light building. You can recognize it by the rainbow-colored chimneys on top, which is visible from blocks away. The museum starts with a sundial outside. Many displays educate children on many aspects of science: the physics of resistance, optical illusions, weather, water and fluid dynamics, the biology of prehistoric animals (with a recently acquired mastodon skeleton), the physics of sound. There is a darkened "subway" alley that children can climb through and explore. The waterways display allows kids to play with boats and obstacles. The terrarium has a few animals like turtles and frogs. There is a small "funhouse" with distortions of space in the ground floor. The museum also often holds camps for children during holidays and summer. There are special events (for example, on New Year's Day weekend, hundreds of balloons are released from the ceiling after a count-down at noon, and there is an annual train event). The membership is reciprocal with many other science or children's museums across the country. We have come to several birthday celebrations here.
