Things for Kids to Do In Birmingham, Alabama: The McWane Center

A Fun-filled Day at McWane Science Center

IMG_0118It seems that I sometimes forget that the McWane Science Center is open on the weekends.   But since I had been posting about things for kids to do around Birmingham Alabama for the Christmas holiday season, The McWane Science Center was fresh on my mind.

I took my grandson there today and we had a ball.  Besides hanging out with Clifford the Dog, Tristan got a chance to:

  • Play in snow (yeah, inside the McWane Science Center
  • Take a train ride
  • See the model train exhibits
  • “Watch” the other kids touch fish
  • Go on a dinosaur dig
  • Be in awe of the hug tanks that housed all kinds of fish (big, small, colorful and all shapes and sizes
  • Encased himself in a bubble making apparatus

Oh I could just go on and on.  Sure I know it all sounds fascinating, but reading about it just is not the same as being there.  It’s a little after 4:3o on this Saturday afternoon, so The McWane Science Center will be closed soon.  BUT the good news is that they’ll be open on Sunday so whether you plan a trip to McWane with the kids or just surprise them like I did Tristan…….it’s going to all be worth it.

McWane Science Center is convenient located in Downtown Birmingham at 200 19th Street North, Birmingham, AL 35203.  And for those of you that are lucky enough to live downtown, it’s just a short walk an adventure with the kids.
