There is a lot to see and do. The science museum offers some great activities for the entire family. There is a lot of history surrounding many of these buildings. I glad that they preserved and restored these older buildings. There is also a very nice art museum. The library is located beside the science museum. There is also a music venue, for the choral society and I believe also for symphonies. I enjoy walking around the outside grounds. There is a lot of neat stuff to see on the outside.

We are long-time fans of the Science Center, It was a favorite of our sons growing up, and still is rewarding for visitors of all ages. It is high on the list of places to take out-of-town visitors. There are always new exhibits, and the existing exhibits are always engaging. I have visited quite a few hands-on museums, and CSC is up there with the best!
