This is one of those places that make you say "wow". If you love to know how and why things work you gotta visit this center. It's near Forest Park so put it on the list when you visit the park.

The St. Louis Science Center is better than most I've visited. In my opinion it is better than the newer San Francisco version!

This is a really fun day for children and adults alike. Bonus if there is a special exhibit in town.
