It had been awhile since I’ve been here - so much fun & many new things to explore! I agree with others - call and try to go when there isn’t a large group scheduled.

This science center is great for young kids. My guess would be 5--10 year olds. It is small, and educational. Make sure to see the show. Very quick from beginning to end.

If I were in the Allentown area with some small kids and the day was rainy, well, the Da Vinci Science Center would be a fine place to spend some time. From what we saw, the ball machine and the water trough were just the...More

On the main floor, the ball machine and the water tank are great draws for younger children and we observed many kids enjoying these activities. The special exhibit on frogs and amphibians was colorful and attractive with some hands-on activities. The second floor has a...More

I was really excited to go to a science center hoping to learn some amazing things. This place really has nothing going for it. We spent about three hours there and all I wanted to do was leave. Don't waste your time.

It’s really for younger people but can be fun if you realize that before you visit.

Sorry but I don't know. Your best bet would be to call the museum.
