Discover hands-on fun at miSci (museum of innovation and science), a regional science center in downtown Schenectady. With interactive exhibits, including traveling exhibits from San Francisco's Exploratorium, miSci is a must-see for families, tourists, area residents, and other visitors. Other exhibit highlights include Butterflies, an indoor butterfly house with hundreds of butterflies fluttering about, mid-February to mid-April, Trains & Toys, a holiday exhibit with running model trains, Thanksgiving to mid-January, and blockbuster summer exhibits. miSci’s Suits-Bueche Planetarium lets visitors explore astronomy and the night sky with educator-led shows about the stars. Sitting in comfortable seats indoors in a theater setting, visitors are able to discover stars, planets and other celestial objects projected onto a 30-foot dome above. miSci is a valuable resource for school, group, and summer camp field trips and outreach programs and also offers full-day, week-long hands-on science classes for kids during school break weeks and summer. miSci is open Monday through Saturday , 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. with planetarium shows offered daily.
