In the News: Opening Day at the Science Center with WFMZ 69 News

May 22, 2024

Excerpt from story by Justin Backover from WFMZ 69 News

The new Da Vinci Science Center in downtown Allentown is officially open to the public.

Doors opened at 10 a.m. Wednesday after a ribbon-cutting with Mayor Matt Tuerk on Tuesday.

The new Hamilton Street facility has four permanent exhibits, including the interactive “My Body,” “Science in the Making,” and a river otters enclosure sponsored by WFMZ.

It also has a rotating exhibit, which is currently showing “Dinos Alive,” where you can see what it was like to live among the fearsome reptiles.

Entry tickets start at $20.
