Arizona Science Center
Located in Heritage and Science park in the heart of downtown Phoenix, the Arizona Science Center has more than 350 hands-on exhibits. A perfect place for any young one or science lover. Arizona Science Center’s main focus is to educate, inspire, and entertain people about the basics of science.
Beginning as a small (10,000-square-foot) test-run exhibit and a non-profit corporation in 1982 the Arizona Science Center rapidly found growth in attendance and an increasing demand and later expanded to 120,000-square feet in 1997. In 1998 the City of Phoenix spent $4.1 million to expand the building by an additional 22,500 square feet.
Along with the 350 plus hands-on exhibits the Arizona Science Center also hosts camps in the winter, spring, and summer, shows digital film highlights of the exploration of the moon, a 3D experience of a penguin journey, and starting January 5th 2014 an imagination playground. The Science Center also lets your host your own party there!
Arizona Science Center is open daily from 10AM to 5PM admission is $14.95 for adults, $12.95 for seniors, and children (3-17) are $11. For more information go to: http://www.azscience.org/
