A Richmond, Virginia Community

"Touch, observe and explore the impact of science on your life from astronomy to computers, from DNA to electricity — all within the elegant grandeur of a historic, renovated railroad station.

Enjoy hundreds of permanent and visiting exhibits. See rats play basketball. Ride on a Segway®. Play laser pool. Watch the Foucault pendulum as it proves the Earth’s rotation. Visit Bioscape — an inter-active life sciences exhibition. Watch a giant-screen film in the museum’s Ethyl Corporation IMAX®DOME & Planetarium. The five-story theater with its tilted-dome screen and digital sound system puts you in the middle of the action. Look for live theater presentations by the Carpenter Science Theatre Company. "
