We found this store by their webpage. Our kids are very interested in the ocean, animals, and science. It is a small shop in the middles of a shopping/food district. The owners were very welcoming and informative (even recommending books). Lots of activities scheduled. Definitely worth the visit.

Helpful and courteous. Very nice. Found exactly what I was looking for. They have a nice selection and extremely reasonable prices. They are one of the few stores left that encourage you to play with the toys before you buy them. Thank you.

All kinds of science and math games and toys. They also have projects for the kids on some day s. The owners of the store are both educators and they really love working with kids.

Delightful-from the owners to the learning and shopping experience. The type of business you want to support!! Shop is large and lots to see. Kids were treasured rather than tolerated-which was a nice change! Took my 3yr, 11mo, and cousin's 7&11yo and we stayed an hour exploring, learning, shopping... All kinds of educational things for all ages to learn in... More

A wonderful store with unique gifts and books. Fossils and telescopes decorate this great shop. Ice Cream available for the young and mature. Many activities for children on a weekly or monthly basis. First Fridays are great as there is musical entertainment and a star watch. Stop by for a calendar of events or find it online.

We visited while trying to fill a couple hours. The owner was very friendly and knowledgable, didn't mind my sons questions and was eager to show us around. It is a nice little shop with unique, educational items and displays. Would defiantly recommend stopping in!

Located right across from downtown Wheeling's Center Market. The owners are both science teachers & very enthusiastic. Cool science items, books, & dinosaur stuff to see plus a snack bar.

While in Wheeling on vacation recently I took my kids, along with my sister-in-law and her two children, to the Smart Center. The kids ranged in age from 4-11 and each one of them had a blast exploring all the cool science related stuff. The variety of ice-cream they offer was a great way to top off the fun. They... More

An old friend runs it, so I'm less than completely objective, but it's a great store with some really cool science-related stuff. They love kids and do a lot of fun classes.
