Arizona Science Center!

Watch with your family as Jace and Rylan explore the Arizona Science Center. Show your kiddos what to expect, talk about any concerns, and plan around potential sensory sensitivities.


Plan with 'Insider Tips'

Prepare best by knowing when, where and how to go.

Sensory Scale uses 1 – 10 scoring, with 10 being maximum sensory input.

How loud
How much walking
How many people
How many hours to stay

Lots of educational, interactive fun to engage your body and mind. The Center is a hands-on place to learn so find what you are interested in and start exploring!

Use the Heritage Square parking garage off 5th St. and Monroe, then bring your ticket to the Information Desk for validation.

Keep your wristband on to enjoy in-and-out access to the Arizona Science Center. Wristbands can be worn on ankles or belt loops, if requested.

Food and drinks from home can be enjoyed in the Cafeteria, or you can purchase a healthy snack at Bean Sprouts Café. Water bottles are allowed in the Center.

Weekdays after 1 pm and mornings on weekends can be quieter. Free days are very crowded and wait times can be long.

So much to see, feel, smell and hear! Some exhibits, like the sneezing nose and Immersion Theater, can make sudden noises. Bring headphones, if needed.
