Parking at the Hilton Hotel is convenient and the programs are always fun for the kids. It's a great way to spend the afternoon.

Wow! Just wow. Our daughter came to visit from Florida and Whitaker Center was first on the list. If you have not visited an IMAX theater before, this visit is highly recommended. The museum is definitely a winner. We had an urban hike all over Harrisburg and visited many attractions and restaurants. There are many wonderful things to see and do.

loved the museum and all the interactive activities for young and old alike. I think I may have actually had more fun then the kids and they had a blast. Nicely laid out and very "user friendly" there wasn't an exhibit that wasn't enjoyed by us all. We missed the IMax but will make sure next visit we do that first. Good stuff, thank you.

In 2010, I went here on a field trip with my 12th grade science class to see Surgery Live and the museum. Surgery Live was very, very interesting and I would definitely recommend it. Some parts of the museum were designed for younger (maybe middle-school aged kids), but there is still plenty to see and exhibits that will entertain older teens and adults.
