The Great Lakes Science Center is located right on the shores of Lake Erie, between the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Cleveland Brown's Stadium. This is not your normal science museum, where you would just walk by exhibits and read a few facts. The Science Center contains over 400 interactive exhibits, including such mind-bending displays as Touch the Indoor Tornado, Investigate the Sick Earth, and The Electric Theater Show. There are also much smaller exhibits where you can learn about the effects of magnets or see how the rotation of the Earth affects the things around us. Getting a hands-on experience is a great way to encourage your and your children's imagines, and it is a great way to learn about science and the world around us. This is not an all-day activity, but is an excellent and fun way to spend an afternoon with the family. I have been to the Science Center three or four times, and every time they have something new or something I missed the last time.
The Science Center also contains The Cleveland Clinic OMNIMAX Theater. The theater is a six-story tall dome that delivers an unbelievable audio and visual experience. Whether it takes you on a gliding tour of the Grand Canyon or you explore the human body, the theater inspires a feeling of weightless and flight. It connects with all your senses and really takes you to the place it is showing. It only costs a few more dollars for a ticket, and if you have the time, it is absolutely worth it.
The Science Center has its own parking and restaurant and is very easy to get to. Take East 9th to the lake and turn left. If you are doing the Rock Hall on the same day, you can easily park here and just walk over.

Once we got inside the museum, it did not seem crowded. There were hundreds of interesting exhibits to explore. You could easily spend most of a day at the museum. Our kids loved it. The omnimax theater was also very nice.
