This downtown Phoenix museum is pretty much guaranteed to bring out the nerd in anyone. Whether or not you think you care about science, the Arizona Science Museum offers hands-on experiences that make learning about gravity and electric circuits fun for visitors of all ages. With more than 164,000 square feet of space, the museum offers more than enough to entertain the kids for a day – which isn't to say the adults won't enjoy the trip, too. In fact, according to the museum more than half a million guests come to do so each year. Popular permanent exhibits include “All About Me,” an exploration of the body's inner workings that lets guests walk through a “working” stomach and watch surgeries be performed. You can lie on a bed of nails, build your own electric circuit or ride the Evans Family SkyCycle on any given day as well as enjoy the museum's planetarium and IMAX theater.
Arizona Science Center has a rich history of exploration, innovation and collaboration. Beginning as a community project of The Junior League of Phoenix in 1980, the Center has established itself as a major institution of learning for families, teachers, students and other guests. Over three decades, with substantial help from the citizens of Phoenix and years of focused content and program development, the Center has grown to serve more than a half million guests annually, of which nearly 140,000 are school children.
