I love the science center and my kids love it too. It has really come a long way in the last few years. Top notch. An excellent way to spend the day. Take your time and enjoy it all.

I have been here with children multiple times. It is interesting for people of all ages, including younger children, teens and adults. Especially enjoyable is the zoo part, with good information and opportunities for visitors to learn from experts and touch animals.
The new aquarium is very small. It does have a nice penguin exhibit, and a small area to touch stingrays, but overall if you have been to a larger aquarium, sea world, etc, you will be very disappointed.

I wish the center changed exhibits more. Many areas seem unchanged for years...except of course, the addition of the aquarium.

This place is awesome! Make sure you have plenty of time, because it will take you a while to get a good look at everything. I was there 2 hours, but could have stayed longer if I wanted. Sadly, they were renovating, and you couldn't see the tigers, but still it was a lot of fun. My favorite part was the petting zoo. You were able to pet sheep and goats.

The Greensboro Science Center is actually three attractions in one. It's a science center, zoo and aquarium. Each one is small but together they make up a decent sized place. The science center consists bascially of two sections. One is a room with some skeletons of dinosaurs and other animals, along with a mineral collection. The other is healthquest which is more hands on. The aquarium was rather small and did not take long to see. The zoo is outside and also offers a playground and discovery house. The cafe had some decent food and was reasonable. We had free admission with the ATSC program, so it was worth it.
