“Nice Museum”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

Free with an ASTC membership, we stopped here after a visit to the Space & Rocket Center. This smaller science center has some great, unique exhibits. The kids, ages 10, 8, 6, loved the magnetic sand. The staff was so friendly and they had several experiments set up the day we were there. We saw the movie inside the dome and while that was a unique experience, the movie wasn't my favorite.

Worth a visit.

“Science Scene”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

First, please note the address has changed to
1435 Paramount Dr, Huntsville, AL- (256) 837-0606. They're in a new building! It is a fun science center for families and those who love science. The staff was helpful and the center was clean. Ample parking and small but useful gift shop area. They sell snacks and drinks but not hot food.
