The center, located in the southeast part of Forest Park, contains more than 600 hands-on exhibits on ecology, space, and humanity. You'll also find life-size animated dinosaurs and exhibits showcasing technology and the environment. The two main buildings of the Science Center are connected by a bridge over U.S. 40 (which contains radar guns to measure the speed of cars below).

Perfect for a full day of activities for the kids and conveniently located for a baseball game right afterward. Should probably wait until Highway 40 is being finished built due to one of the main attractions being the speedometer and there are no cars flying by underneath.

Must see for anyone that likes to tinker and play with stuff. The science center has a lot of really cool information about the area and it gives you the opportunity to get beyond that boring text book education stuff. Lots of stuff to play with for kids and adults.
