Saint Louis Science Center
The Saint Louis Science Center is located on Oakland Avenue, just west of Kingshighway, off I-64. The two-building complex features over 700 interactive, hands-on experiences related to ecology and environment, space, and paleontology, as well as a brand new gallery devoted to video games. See a film on the OMNIMAX® Theater's five-story domed screen, and watch star shows at the famous McDonnell Planetarium across the highway in Forest Park. World-class special exhibitions are also available. Groups should plan to spend at least three to four hours.
