Admission Prices

For an initial visit, plan on spending 2-3 hours at Science Central. With a plethora of exhibits to explore, you'll want to visit the Swap Shop to trade a rock, mineral or fossil, and catch a demonstration on a science topic in the Lincoln Financial Foundation Demonstration Theater!   Visitors with children ages 7 and under should check out Kids Central - a gallery especially for young visitors (learn more).  Also, please note that some of our staffed exhibits follow an exhibit schedule, and that some exhibits have age, height or weight limits  (learn more).
