The Science Center of Iowa is a pretty amazing place – it’s home to an impressive digital planetarium and special exhibits that allow visitors get up close with Iowa’s native animals, explore the cosmos, build a rocket ship and more.
One hands on exhibit is of special interest to anyone who once built a castle or space ship with plastic blocks. Brick by Brick is a permanent exhibit that centers on LEGOs® in a way that’s both educational and surprising.
