Unfortunately, this place is usually full of school groups where the kids run around just pushing buttons. There's a small area for younger children, but big kids are known for just running around there as well. Many exhibits don't work properly.

We visit Science Central monthly. They change the exhibits and there is always something new to see and learn. My grandkids are always anxious to visit.

I have been to Science Central many times over the past 15 years. For the most part I would say the exhibits have not changed drastically over the years, but they always entertain and teach my children something. Be on the look out for free...More

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.
