Arizona Science Center
About the Arizona Science Center:
The Arizona Science Center proves that learning can be fun, not only for you but for the whole family. If you are someone who wonders how, or why or what happened, then come explore some of what science has to share, in a fun and interactive way. With both permanent and temporary exhibits, special events and daily demonstration, there is always something happening that is worth checking out.
To top off the exhibits, there are two great theater experiences also available at the science center. First is the Irene P. Flinn Theater which is a 5-story state-of-the-art IMAX theater that shows both 3D and standard films. Here you will find documentaries that focus on a variety of subjects including nature, human accomplishment and more. The theater boasts 280 seats and has two showings daily. The second theater experience takes you into space and beyond. The Dorrance Planetarium is one of the largest in the US, and features a dome that appears totally seamless under projection. Learn about our night skies, our solar system and current astronomical challenges and discoveries. You can also rock out to some great music all while seeing a fantastic laser show. Laser show evenings include a bar where beer and cocktails can be purchased as well as snacks and other refreshments.
