"Thank you very much to Cole for his excellent guided tour of Victoria! Husband and myself always enjoy our time at the Arizona Science Center. We are happy to see you all are taking Covid seriously.

Our new Guided Experiences offer the perfect combination of safety, science and most importantly FUN! But don’t take our word for it.

Michelle

"Arizona Science Center has reopened in a new format - small group, guided experiences. Each experience is organized around a theme, with a dedicated staff guide leading no more than 10 people through exhibits and hands-on activities over 2.5 hours, including a film in the giant screen theater. We chose the [T. rex] Experience, obviously."
