  • The Greensboro Science Center has grown a lot since my childhood. I hardly recognized the place. Gone are the somewhat shabby surroundings, worn taxidermy, and small rooms that often made it feel like it was a converted office building. Now it feels like a fully functioning museum with beautiful wildlife exhibits, most of whom are alive and kicking. The sea life exhibit is probably the most impressive thing they have, and the penguin exhibit the most delightful. All this comes at a price, of course. $12.50 for adults. $11.50 for senior citizens and kids under 13 years of age. If your young one is 2 or less, admission is free. The price is well worth it.
  • 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.
  • Loved this place. Took a 10 yr old and 12 yr old they seemed to enjoy it. The body and health exhibits were a big hit. Dinosaur bone charcoal drawings were also big too. Reasonable price as well.
  • My kid loves this place. We got a membership when he was 2 and he has loved it the past 2 years. He likes the kid play areas and the (imo poor quality) dinosaur video. There are several interactive places (not as many as some museums though). The membership gets you access or a discount at quite a few zoos and museums across the country.
  • We took our kids there (5/3 yr). We all had a blast! Staff was very friendly and facilities were just amazing.
