Great Lakes Science Center 👩🏻🔬
601 Erieside Ave. Cleveland
Roadtrip(a short 2 hours)! I was pleasantly surprised at the variety and the number of hands on activities the kids could explore here. Lego lovers will rejoice at the exhibit that includes a ride on train(through April 8th). Astronauts will be awed by all the hands on activities and spaceships at the NASA Glenn Center. All ages, adults included will find something they like.
👧🏼Little ones will love the area sectioned off just for them, and the remaining area is great for ages 7 and under.
🏠Polymer Funhouse is an interactive tree house like structure with exhibits all around. It includes a ball pit with buckets to fill and dump a giant claw.
👨🚀 NASA Glenn Center has a command module crew compartment that has been in space, astronaut suits, rockets, simulators, and all things space.
🔨Build It-April 8th
Create and race a car in the Brickyard Raceway, build a 2 dimensional mosaic, see a collection of Lego trains, create unique legos at the animation station, and younger kids can build with larger legos. Last but not least, ride the Lego train as many times as you like!
⚙Creates Zone allows kids to tinker, design, invent, and create. Light sculptures, parachutes, race track, rockets, shoe cobblers/hat maker.
🔬Science Phenomena explores electricity, magnetism, light, optics, motion, mechanics, sound and resonance.
🚢William G. Mather Steamship, tour a restored 618 foot historic flagship steamship for an add on cost.
