Keep your wristband on to enjoy in-and-out access to the Arizona Science Center. Wristbands can be worn on ankles or belt loops, if requested.

Outside food OK in cafeteria

Food and drinks from home can be enjoyed in the Cafeteria, or you can purchase a healthy snack at Bean Sprouts Café. Water bottles are allowed in the Center.

Quieter times to visit

Weekdays after 1 pm and mornings on weekends can be quieter. Free days are very crowded and wait times can be long.

Loud noises may occur

So much to see, feel, smell and hear! Some exhibits, like the sneezing nose and Immersion Theater, can make sudden noises. Bring headphones, if needed.
