- Museums and Galleries
An unforgettable experience awaits you at the Sciencenter!
Get ready to climb, splash, think, build, and bounce your way through
four full-sized exhibit galleries with full-body science fun.
From Astronomy to Zoology, the Sciencenter offers more than 250
exhibits for visitors of any age or ability. From colorful snakes to
beautiful sea stars, you can meet and touch many of the critters in two
live animal zones: the Connect to the Ocean Touch Tank and the Saltonstall
Animal Room. Designed for smaller hands, littler bodies and inquisitive minds,
the Curiosity Corner is a vibrant play space welcoming Sciencenter visitors ages 4 and under.
Outside, you can explore sound, motion, water and more in the Emerson Science Park,
challenge a friend to a round of Galaxy Golf on the science-filled 18-hole miniature course,
or explore the Sagan Planet Walk, a ¾-mile walking tour from the Commons in downtown Ithaca to the Sciencenter.
Whether you’re new to the Finger Lakes region or settled for good, a Sciencenter membership
