Great Lakes Science Center, home of the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, makes science, technology, engineering, and math come alive for more than 300,000 visitors a year. Here you can experiment, create, and play with hundreds of hands-on exhibits. There are daily science demonstrations and traveling exhibitions that satisfy and delight the curious scientist in everyone. Tinker and build in the new Cleveland Creates Zone, and see what life was like aboard a working Great Lakes freighter, the 618-foot Steamship William G. Mather. Younger guests will delight in the Polymer Funhouse. And enjoy an unforgettable cinematic experience in the Cleveland Clinic Foundation Dome Theater (opening this month).
