Tips for Visitors

Weekday Afternoons

The Da Vinci Science Center is busy frequently with school field trips on weekdays. School groups visit usually from 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Public visitors can have the best possible experiences if their schedules allow them to visit in the afternoon.

An After-School Treat

Most groups visiting the Da Vinci Science Center leave between 1-2 p.m. to return to their schools or community centers. The hours between 2-5 p.m. are great times for families and friends to visit.

We Do Not Serve Food

Our current facility does not have the ability to serve food. However, we do offer a cafeteria space with chairs and tables for you convenience. Guests are welcome to bring their own lunch or leave for lunch and return after. Snacks are also available from our vending machine selection.

School Holidays are Special

The Da Vinci Science Center plans programming for most school year holidays. If the kids are off from school, then there is a good chance that something special is happening at the Center.

Do Not Be Afraid to Ask

The Da Vinci Science Center is about curiosity, which means that all respectful and appropriate questions are welcome. If a team member looks like he or she is doing something, feel free to ask. The team member might even give you a sneak peek or special sample. Also feel free to ask where the bathrooms are. Team members answer that question every day.
