This is a must do in Greensboro! Even adults can really enjoy the exhibits. We went during the Bodies Revealed, which was excellent. Plenty of animals and a ropes course.

I have lived in many states and for a city the size of Greensboro to have such a fun science center and zoo is something to share with everyone. I always include this place when people come to visit

Friends just had their wedding reception here and it is a unique venue that encourages conversation and interaction for all ages. It was amazing to watch the animals who provided lots of live entertainment and easy conversation with folks you don't know well. Plenty of space for dancing and staff very accommodating.
