For 20 years, the McWane Science Center has been making learning fun for kids of all ages in Birmingham and beyond. This hands-on science museum is celebrating two decades strong in the Magic City. Located in the heart of downtown Birmingham, the McWane Science Center encompasses four floors of fascinating, fun, interactive exhibits. Inspiring wonder and curiosity in kids ages 1 to 100, McWane continues to bring science to life for all visitors.
McWane at a Glance
You could spend a whole day here and still not take in everything there is to see and do. McWane has something special for every visitor, every age, every interest. There’s Itty Bitty Magic City – a small-scale town geared toward little ones (kindergarten and younger) that lets them explore mini setups like a diner, a vet, storefronts, and a fire station. There’s a secure toddler area, water play, and a climbing structure. There’s the IMAX Dome Theater – a five-story domed screen that offers a completely immersive film experience. And, of course, there is the main draw: the exhibits.
- Lower Level: Featuring the World of Water Aquariums, the Shark & Ray Touch Tank, River Journey, Aquascape Theater, and Ocean Journey.
- Level 1: Featuring ScienceQuest, the Bubble Room, the Race Track, the Demonstration Station, the Bernoulli Fountain, and more.
- Level 2: Featuring NatureScope, Sea Monsters, Alabama Dinosaurs, Science on a Sphere, and High Cycle, as well as Itty Bitty Magic City and the IMAX Dome.

McWane Science Center is a great way to escape the heat this summer as you help the museum celebrate 20 years of discovery. General admission is $13 for ages 13-64, $9 for kids 2-12, $12 for seniors 65+. Kids under 2 get in free. You can purchase IMAX tickets separately or with general admission, and memberships are available as well – great for frequent visitors!
