The Science Center is not easily accessible for the disabled. I was alone with my wife in a wheelchair with noone around. There are no automatic doors to enter the building and there are two sets of doors to do so. I was also disappointed,...More

Highly recommend the season pass. That way you can go for an hour or so and not feel obligated to stay for several hours which will be too long for young children.

My family goes to the Science Center frequently. The exhibits and hands on user friendly displays entertain while teaching. I would recommend the Science Center to any family especially with children.

We’ve been to this place a number of times since moving to Greensboro in 2016. It’s always beautiful, always clean and always has something new to see.

Yes. You can check in their website for what they currently charges. If you have elementary school children, look into a membership.

The science center is a great hands on for the little ones. All my grandkids have loved it there. The zoo is fantastic for older ones as there is a lot of walking. Less hands on but more of an educational value.
