EXPLORE CREATION AT AKRON FOSSILS & SCIENCE CENTER!
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!
