Greensboro Science Center
The Greensboro Science Center is an aquarium, museum and zoo — all in one location, for one price! Located in beautiful Greensboro, North Carolina, it’s the perfect way to spend a day with your family and friends.
Our indoor aquarium features charismatic penguins, lovable otters, colorful fish, sharks, jellyfish, and much more. A stingray touch tank offers you the opportunity to touch rays, skates, and even small sharks! Check our daily schedule and stick around for our daily dive, fish feeding, or penguin feeding.
Outside in the zoo, you’ll have the chance to see crocodiles sunning themselves, gibbons swinging across their exhibit, and meerkats standing watch. Hands-on fun is available in our farmyard, where you can pet goats and sheep, play in our farmhouse, and watch NC crops, such as cotton, grow from seed to harvest. Overhead, watch SKYWILD participants zip, slide, climb, and fly through the trees. If you’re feeling brave, give our treetop adventure park a try for yourself!
The museum features exhibits about dinosaurs, health and the human body, and weather. SciPlay Bay, an interactive children’s play space is the perfect place for youngest explorers to exercise their imaginations. Stop by the lower level of the museum to look at (and maybe even meet) some reptiles, amphibians and insects. The museum offers a number of shows and interactive experiences, so be sure to catch an OmniSphere Theater show, meet Tai the red panda (our resident SciPlay Bay ocean explorer), or check out an Adventure Theater show featuring Indiana Bones or our musical meerkat friends!
