The McWane Science Center truly is one of Birmingham's "crown jewels". At the McWane Center, the whole family can enjoy learning on four different levels of the Center and take in a breathtaking lifelike movie on the IMAX silver screen. With my own children, having the yearly Science Center family pass is a MUST! It is relatively inexpensive and, if your family is big like mine is, it will pay for itself in the first visit. The $95 yearly pass also gets you into other cooperating museums and attractions around the Southeast. At McWane, they are always rotating their exhibits to keep it fresh. The marquee attraction (at least for my boys) is the Big Machines Day where local construction equipment supplier, Craneworks, allows children (and fathers) to explore all kinds of heavy construction machinery. At McWane you can learn all about the history of our planet, play on a huge indoor playground or try and figure out why certain scientific mysteries are well...mysteries.
