We love Science Central and can recommend the yearly membership. Also included in the membership are many other science centers. We visit Science Central for extra classes that are available through the week and the summer camps.

Good place for kids and adults to visit. A wide range of exhibits and interaction. Some of the features change from month to month. Low price and a good time for all.

Science Central was built with young kids in mind. They can touch, operate & view many, many science projects themselves. This is a very kid friendly place to go for their enjoyment.

In my opinion, the Science Central might not have enough material to spark their interest for age group 14+. It would be a good place for a pit stop in Fort Wayne if you just want to give it a visit.

I don't know but you could look them up on the internet and give them a call! After you pay the fee to get in, everything is included.
