Take the kids to a fun, exciting, hands on educational day, Even as an adult I am always fascinated about going to the Science Center just to see what else they have for us all to learn.

What a waste of space and a representation of the lack of creativity in Cedar Rapids.

The museum was affected by the flood of 2008 and is no longer open downtown. Sadly, the IMAX theater closed a few months prior to this because it cost too much. The museum has opened a small museum at Lindale Mall until they can find...More

This is by far the best IMAX ever. I love the dome shape. It's well worth it!

I take my children every year ... there are always a rotating bunch of learning activities on 3 floors. After we've tried out all of the neat experiments and demonstrations, we visit the gift shop for some cool items. Then, we watch a neat movie...More
