  • My family really enjoyed Greensboro Science Center! My husband and I used to visit before we had kids and now that we have them, it's so great to see them explore and have fun! There is so much to experience here, you can see many different animals, from land, sky, prehistoric, and sea, plus there is a great indoor play area for small kids to be safe and play. Overall it's a great experience! I highly recommend!
  • The Kids and the Parents had a blast here. There is so much to learn, and the animal petting was a thrill for the Kids. This is a very busy place, but well worth the time, cost, and energy. Staff were courteous and very helpful. Even the restaurant had decent food. Please take your Kids her! They will enjoy it immensely!
