Kansas City kids and parents love the Science Center. In 2015, more than 192,000 guests attended Science City. That's an increase of 23% from 2014 and 50% overall since 2012. 

Over 50% of the inspiring space has been completely reimagined and transformed in the last three years alone, with much more to come.  In 2017, Science City will – for the first time – expand outdoors and feature the latest creations from the Burns  McDonnell Battle of the Brains competition.  

Continually evolving and always inventing new ways to make science meaningful and fun, Science City has become THE regional destination for families, groups and special events.
