Greensboro Science Center features a zoo, a museum with interactive exhibits, and an inland aquarium.

Look for a roaring 11 m (36 ft) Tyrannosaurus Rex model in the museum or walk through a giant interactive human body. In the aquarium, you can sign up for a behind-the-scenes tour and learn about different species of aquatic animals. You'll observe animals such as sharks, eels, penguins, and turtles up close. Leave time to check out the 3-D dome theater. See Greensboro Science Center and all Greensboro has to offer by arranging your trip with our Greensboro trip itinerary builder.

  • This is a great place for families. Purchase a membership. It is definitely worth it. Makes for a great day or just a drop in play place for a couple of hours. The Sky Wild ropes course is somewhat overpriced.
  • Amazing place to spend a few hours. It's a zoo, an acqarium and a museum combined. For 12.50 a piece, this center is pretty affordable. People of all ages can spend some quality time here. Not as big as Asheboro zoo but they have a good selection of animals.
  • Very nice place to take my children also we were able to see the tiger which not usually possible at other zoo's. Even though the heat was fierce the inside climate offset the exhaustive walk and we are excited to return when it's feasible. Thanks for offering a great experience for me and my family to remember.

  • I can't say enough about this place. Everyone needs to go. I go at least once a week and highly recommend the memberships. They have so much there! My kids love it. We do the nature tot classes as well.
  • This is a great place to bring kids from preschool through grade 5. Lots of fun and interesting activities. It isn't so large that it will tire you out and it's not too small either. I high recommend it.
