The Da Vinci Science Center is set to open its doors in Allentown on May 22, after nearly two years of construction. The center announced the news on Wednesday, with a location at the PPL Pavilion in downtown Allentown. Spanning 67,000 square feet, the new facility offers interactive experiences such as exploring the inner workings of the human body and an up-close visit with North American river otters in the Pocono Gorge.

The first exhibit at the 8,000-square-foot City Center Gallery will be “Dinos Alive!”, which focuses on dinosaurs. In addition to interactive exhibits, the center will also have classrooms, laboratories and interactive workshops. Lynn Erickson, executive director and CEO, expressed her excitement at welcoming the community to the Lehigh Valley’s newest state-of-the-art science center. She noted that the vision of a world-class science center would not be possible without the strong support of everyone in the Lehigh Valley and beyond. The center’s mission is to bring science to life and to inspire lives through science. Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s insatiable curiosity, this new science center aims to immerse visitors in experiences unlike any other.

The current location of the Da Vinci Science Center at Cedar Crest College will close on April 1st and tickets for the new center will go on sale in mid-April. Those interested in learning more can visit for additional information. Years in the making, the Da Vinci Science Center is one step closer to becoming a reality for visitors to explore its unique offerings and learn about science in a fun way.
