Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

Updated October 10, 2021

At Science Central, your health and safety are important to us. Our Mission of being a regional resource that provides inspiring and fun hands-on science education for all people of all ages, is not possible without healthy visitors in a safe environment.

 

The Coronavirus Pandemic has claimed many lives in the United States. It has changed the way we work, live, and feel, around the world and here in Northeast Indiana and the tri-state region. Consequently, we are taking the following precautions to help protect our visitors from the COVID-19 disease as you visit our facility.

 

Note: Science Central is temporarily limiting the number of visitors in the building each hour through the use of timed tickets. As such, Science Central strongly encourages the purchase of your timed tickets online (click here). Not only will you reserve your admission time, but you will save $1 per ticket. As always, members get in free, but will also need to reserve their timed tickets.
