Attraction details
Owner description: The place to go for incredible stuff at unbelievable prices in the Geneva, IL. Here at American Science & Surplus, we are fascinated by discovery and invention and we are dedicated to having fun along the way. We offer an eclectic range of products, many with a science or educational tilt to them, others simply handy or amusing. Value is important, and whenever we can, we carry surplus at prices well below retail. We love closeouts, inventory overruns, mis-manufactures, and items whose time has not come.

Store has a nice selection of science toys and a lot of industrial (and some military) surplus. They have too many kinds of stuff to name everything, and items come and go, but: The science toys include telescopes, microscopes (plus accessories like eyepieces, filters, etc.), chemical glassware, plus many kinds of science kits, including robots. The surplus includes some military stuff like waterproof bags, and a lot of industrial stuff including motors, gears, and electronic parts. The creative comments on the surplus bin labels are a lot of fun. Definitely worth a visit if you have a science-inclined kid or are a "maker".
