Sciencenter is a hands-on science museum in Ithaca, New York. It was founded on February 28, 1983 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit educational organization. The Sciencenter grew out of the volunteer-run hands-on science program run for 15 years at several elementary schools in the Ithaca City School District. The community-based tradition continued as the museum grew to be nationally known, despite not having a paid staff until the 1990s. The Sciencenter is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), and is a member of the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) and Association of Children's Museums.You can plan Ithaca trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
So much fun for the kids and the adults. The exhibits are interactive and there are many things I ahevnt seen anywhere else. We had a blast and if we lived closer would get a membership

We have three boys, two who are autistic. The Ithaca Science Center is a frequent request of theirs and we are always happy to say yes! The staff are kind and knowledgeable, the exhibits are ver accessible. Their toddler space is a favorite for our little guy, and the outdoor area is perfect when the weather is nice. Animals, art, science, and water play - what could be better?
A family can easily spend many hours here, even without a round of mini golf. For less than the price of movie tickets, we got hours of educational play. We loved the How Toys Work exhibit, the water play, and the submarine. Oh and the musical stairs!
