The Akron Fossils & Science Center is an interactive science center that features hands-on guided tours and activities for the whole family. Unlike many science centers, we don’t keep our exhibits behind glass.  As you make your way through the center, you will love interacting with our live animal collection, getting your hands-on real fossils, and even making your own fossil replica to take home!

For those looking to dive deeper into the study of the Earth’s origins, The Creation Education Museum housed within Akron Fossils & Science Center is open for self-guided tours throughout the day. The museum features 18 exhibits that explore topics such as the age and origins of our Universe, as well as some of the science behind what is recorded in the Bible.

General admission includes a hands-on guided tour, admission to our self-guided Creation Education Museum, and entrance to our 2-acre Truassic Park and playground, which features a 200ft long zipline (Please visit the Akron Fossils & Science Center website for zip line rules and guidelines). Hours change seasonally.

Akron Fossils & Science Center also offers a variety of enriching science programs for all ages. Programs include science-themed birthday parties, a monthly Super Science Saturday event, K-12 class for home-educated students, educational days, overnight lock-ins, and science-themed summer camps.
