Fifteen years ago the dream of a community-wide initiative to build a better Birmingham for our children came to fruition.  On July 11th, 1998, McWane Center opened its doors for the very first time.

Today, that dream is a reality far exceeding the wildest of those expectations.  McWane Science Center, Birmingham’s world-class interactive museum, is actively engaged in our mission to change lives through science and wonder every day.

Thousands of families and school children venture through the doors of McWane Science Center every week.  Each is met with a unique, unforgettable opportunity to see, to hear, to touch and to learn the world of science in an exciting and fun way.

Today, McWane Science Center features four floors of hands-on, learning experiences including exhibits, aquariums, live science shows, camps, classes, teacher-training workshops and outreaches to both schools and community libraries throughout the state. It also includes Alabama’s largest movie screen in the John W. Woods IMAX® Dome Theater.

And, over the last fifteen years, McWane Science Center has used our community’s greatest assets to create new, exciting permanent exhibits  for kids of all ages including Just Mice Size, Newsroom Studio, Challenger Learning Center, Dinosaurs of Alabama, Sea Monsters of Alabama, Itty Bitty Magic City, NatureScope, Science On A Sphere and the Shark & Ray Touch Tank.

We are excited to expand upon these with the opening of the Birmingham Children’s Museum At McWane Science Center, which will soon begin construction on Level 2.

In celebration of 15 amazing years, the museum invites you to join the celebration.  All summer long, visitors can explore their favorite exhibits, experience this summer’s traveling exhibit, RACE: Are We So Different?, and watch blockbuster movies in the IMAX® Dome Theater including Star Trek Into Darkness.
