Delightful-from the owners to the learning and shopping experience. The type of business you want to support!! Shop is large and lots to see. Kids were treasured rather than tolerated-which was a nice change! Took my 3yr, 11mo, and cousin's 7&11yo and we stayed an hour exploring, learning, shopping... All kinds of educational things for all ages to learn in... More

A wonderful store with unique gifts and books. Fossils and telescopes decorate this great shop. Ice Cream available for the young and mature. Many activities for children on a weekly or monthly basis. First Fridays are great as there is musical entertainment and a star watch. Stop by for a calendar of events or find it online.

We visited while trying to fill a couple hours. The owner was very friendly and knowledgable, didn't mind my sons questions and was eager to show us around. It is a nice little shop with unique, educational items and displays. Would defiantly recommend stopping in!

Located right across from downtown Wheeling's Center Market. The owners are both science teachers & very enthusiastic. Cool science items, books, & dinosaur stuff to see plus a snack bar.

While in Wheeling on vacation recently I took my kids, along with my sister-in-law and her two children, to the Smart Center. The kids ranged in age from 4-11 and each one of them had a blast exploring all the cool science related stuff. The variety of ice-cream they offer was a great way to top off the fun. They... More

An old friend runs it, so I'm less than completely objective, but it's a great store with some really cool science-related stuff. They love kids and do a lot of fun classes.

Tucked away in the "Center Market" area of downtown Wheeling this amazing place is at first glance a store containing lots of science kits and Ice Cream! The staff not only offer a wide range of products (mostly for kids) but put on science events as well. They run evening telescope programs and do special science activities at schools. Listen...
