Experience the Science-Surrounds-Us-All Actuality at this 110,000 sq-ft creative learning center in Downtown Des Moines. By placing the power of learning in the hands of the visitor with interactive experiences for all ages, the emphasis at SCI is less on WHAT to learn and more on ...
IMAX is a must see!
If you have young kids, I highly recommend buying a yearly pass for the Zoo, the Science Center and Living History Farms. Excellent value.
I recall going here for the DaVinci exhibit - there was also a dinosaur exhibit.
1st Friday of every month is Mixology, a 21+ event. 2nd Friday is Family Night!
Check out the Davinci exhibit while it's in town.
Go meet Annie the mummy! She's over 2000 years old and part of the new Lost Egypt exhibit!
Great place for kids and adults. Explore everything.
Attend Mixology! You learn, you drink, what's better than combo?
Pendelum'll Blow Ur Mind!!
Tornado Alley in IMAX is amazing!
Great for the young elementary school age child! A must visit anytime we are in Des Moines!
Be sure to hit up the IMAX. By far, the best place to watch a movie in the Des Moines Metro.
Mixology nights. Scientific fun for adults.
Bring a picnic lunch and sit outside by the reflecting pool.
kid really enjoyed herself. lots of things to do.
The marketing director is Awesomely awesome.
Where good exhibits go to die. Recommend for kids or people with kids only.
Coolest games EVER
The IMAX is now playing island of lemurs Madagascar and mysteries of the unseen world both are a must see !!!!
Saturday morning: farmers market packed, science center empty. Easy choice with the kiddos.
We are holding our See Des Moines Release party for our Guide to Greater Des Moines at SCI at 5 p.m. Wednesday, September 5...a short program, networking and more will take place. Don't miss it!
Don't park in the ramp for an event - line to pay is ridiculous.
Disappointed in Egyptian exhibit for the cost. Seemed very high.
Science is the new art!
Don't wait until the last minute to see a temporary exhibit - it gets really crowded!
Great place to have a birthday party.
Great place for families
Avoid the Keck parking ramp if you can. I just got charged an extra dollar for ONE MINUTE over an hour!!
The Cafe here has the worst food. I would eat before or after a visit here.
What a rip off! Expensive to get in than you also have to pay to see most exibits!
Really cool place for kids.
This is my first time going
