Arizona Science Center
Phoenix area museum and IMAX
Wow! I can't even pick my favorite part of this museum because there is so many cool things to do! Probably the funnest thing was the Skycycle cause I got to ride across the cable way up in the air! It was so cool, and I learned all about how to balance so that I would be able to stay up. It was awesome!
Calling all scientists! The Arizona Science Center is full of hands-on exhibits that will have every visitor ready to don a white jacket and dive into the laboratory for some scientific fun! With more than 300 exhibits on four open spacious levels, the Science Center is a fabulous way for both kids and adults to spend the day.
This museum has so many exhibits, it's impossible to list them all. Rest assured, though, all of them are a blast, and you will learn so much while you are there! Learn how to use leverage to always win a tug of war or impress your friends by safely laying down on a bed of nails. Explore the science behind weather, learn the scientific principles needed to be able to build a safe and sturdy house, and test the viability of being able to power a town with solar or wind power while browsing through the many exhibits that are on display at the center. There is just so much to see, do and LEARN here, you will not be let down!
In addition to all of the exhibits on display, the center also has a full planetarium and IMAX theater which offers several different shows each day for about the price of a seeing a movie. Book your tickets early in the day to ensure you are able to see the shows that interest you, because they book up quickly - especially on weekends.
Make sure you don't miss the awesome gift shop here, Awesome Atoms, which has all sorts of cool stuff to help you continue your scientific exploration well after you have left the museum. Here you will find games, puzzles, science & activity kits for almost anything you can imagine. By far, this is one of the best shops around!
