Cleveland's Great Lakes Science Center sits at the edge of the downtown harborfront, near the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The museum, opened in 1996, is the ultimate "hands-on" attraction. The Center features over 400 interactive exhibits in its 65,000 square feet of exhibit space. Join me for a tour of this fascinating Cleveland attraction.

The Great Lakes Science Center is open every day of the year, except Christmas and Thanksgiving. It sits downtown at Cleveland's lakefront between Cleveland Stadium and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The center offers an adjacent, enclosed parking garage and gives a discount to visitors. From December through March, the Center has a polymer ice-skating rink set up in front of the facility. The rink carries a separate admission charge.

The museum is open daily from 930am to 530pm, except for Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
