New Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown: A Two-Year Journey from Planning to Reality

The Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown is set to open its doors on May 22, after nearly two years of construction. Located at the PPL Pavilion in downtown Allentown, the new, 67,000-square foot facility at Eighth and Hamilton streets will offer visitors a range of interactive experiences. From exploring the inner workings of the human body to getting an up-close visit with North American River Otters in the Pocono Ravine, there will be plenty of hands-on activities to engage in, according to a press release from the Da Vinci Science Center.

The City Center Gallery, an 8,000-square foot space within the center, will feature the first exhibit titled “Dinos Alive!”, focusing on dinosaurs. In addition to the exhibits, the center will also have classrooms, laboratories, and interactive workshops for visitors to enjoy and learn from. Executive Director and CEO Lin Erickson expressed excitement about welcoming the community to the Lehigh Valley’s new premier science center. The center’s mission is to bring science to life and lives to science, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s insatiable curiosity.

As part of the move from its current location at Cedar Crest College, tickets for the new center will go on sale in mid-April. More information about the center and its offerings can be found on their website at davincisciencecenter.org. Years of planning and hard work have led to this exciting new scientific experience for residents of Allentown and beyond.
