Climb, splash, think, build, and bounce your way through four full-sized exhibit galleries with full-body science fun. From Astronomy to Zoology, the Sciencenter offers 250+ hands-on exhibits. From colorful snakes to beautiful sea stars, you can meet and touch many of the critters in the Connect to the Ocean Touch Tank and Saltonstall Animal Room.

Designed for smaller hands, littler bodies, and inquisitive minds, the Curiosity Corner is a vibrant play space welcome guests ages 4 and under. Outside, explore sound, motion, water, and more in the seasonal Emerson Science Park; challenge a friend to a round of mini-golf on the Sciencenter’s 18-hole miniature golf course; or explore the Sagan Planet Walk, a 3/4 –mile walking tour from the Commons in downtown Ithaca to the Sciencenter.
