For the museum and park
Is the Science Center appropriate for all ages?
Yes. Our hands-on guided tours are targeted to the age and comprehension level of the youngest person in each tour group.
Do I have to make a reservation for a tour?
- If you are an individual or family you do not need to make any reservations; however, we recommend that you call before you come so that you do not arrive at the same time as a previously scheduled group.
- If you are in a group of 15 or more people, advanced reservations are required.
See our group field trip page
Can I tour the museum by myself?
No, the museum is set up for guided tours only. This protects the artifacts and allows us to keep the science center a hands-on facility.
Do you have live animals?
Yes, we have live animals as a part of our permanent exhibits and we offer live animal encounters at the museum for special events and at your location with our Animal Tracks programs. See our Zoology Department for more details.
Do you have real dinosaurs?
No, but we do have real dinosaur bones and other real fossils that you will have the opportunity to hold on a guided tour of the museum.
Are you open during the winter?
Do you have reciprocal admission discounts with other museums?
Not currently, but we are seeking reciprocal discount pricing.
How are you funded?
We are 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Sixty percent of our annual operating cost is paid for by the admission and activity fees we charge. The other 40% of our operating cost comes from fundraising and the generous gifts of individuals like you. Learn more about supporting us on our donations page.
Is there a place to eat at your facility?
Yes, we have an outdoor picnic shelter (that seats 24) as well as indoor eating areas in our Birthday Party Room when it is not being used to eat a packed lunch. There are several local pizza places that can deliver pizza to the center.
For those looking for places to eat elsewhere, there is a Subway and Big Star Pizza three minutes north of us near the Copley circle on S. Cleveland-Massillon Rd. Additional restaurant selections can be found further north of us in the Montrose/Fairlawn shopping district or to the south of us in and around Norton Plaza.
