Tours * Exhibits * Explore * Programming


Tours                                                                                     Come explore our 18 recently renovated exhibits which compare and contrast the intelligent design model of the universe's origins to the Darwinian evolutionary model and examine topics such as fossilization, fossils of Ohio, geology, human artifacts, dinosaurs, dragons, life origins, Biblical history, and more!

Take a guided tour with one of our knowledgeable tour guides or, coming soon, choose a self-guided option, exploring and discovering at your own pace.


Whatever you choose, a tour through Akron Fossils & Science Center will take you on an hour long adventure through the science of the world past, present, and future that you’ll never forget!


Touch real fossils!                                                                                                    Unlike many other science centers, our fossils aren’t in glass cases; they are in your hands where you can truly experience and learn from these records of the past.






Make your own replicas!

At Akron Fossils & Science Center, you don't just learn about science, you take part in it too!  Make fossil replicas just like real paleontologists!
