St. Louis Sights

St. Louis Science Center

  • Forest Park

Fodor's Review

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).
