|About these ratings|
Seek refuge from the broiling Phoenix weather in the Arizona Science Center, where interactive displays teach kids about everything from electricity to weather patterns to outer space. One TripAdvisor user writes: "We highly recommend the star show … for children at the planetarium. The kids learned a lot about the stars and it was interactive. They wanted to do the show again." Other popular exhibits include exhibits on sound, gravity and psychology. An IMAX Theater also offers family-friendly, educational entertainment.
As the highlight of Downtown Phoenix's Heritage and Science Park, the Arizona Science Center is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission costs vary by age (entry to the planetarium and the IMAX Theater costs extra). The museum also hosts special events featuring everything from story time to Superhero science. For more information, check out the Arizona Science Center website.
