The Connecticut Science Center is a 154,000-square-foot museum situated in Hartford, Connecticut. The museum officially opened to the public on June 12, 2009. The building?s design was by C?sar Pelli & Associates, with a space of forty thousand square feet devoted to interactive exhibits made up of videos, visuals, audios, programs, tactile components, and live demonstrations.

The Connecticut Science Center was built for the purpose of getting people, especially young ones, to get interested in science and to encourage such learning by providing a venue for a hands-on and interactive experience. The center houses more than 150 exhibits, but unlike most science centers and museums, visitors can see and touch for themselves the things on display. ?Invention Dimension? is one of these exhibits, where visitors are encouraged to think outside the box and even create their own experiments. Other exhibits in the science center are ?Picture of Health,? where visitors are treated to everything health related to help them make better choices for a healthier life; ?Sports Lab,? where visitors can learn about athletics in relation to science; and ?River of Life,? a resource solely dedicated to the Connecticut River.

The Connecticut Science Center boasts of a 3D theater that provides ?the absolute best cinema experience,? thanks to its giant screen measuring thirty by forty inches, a Dolby sound system powered by eighteen thousand watts, and 3D glasses. This 3d theater is located in the Maximilian E. and Marion O. Hoffman Foundation Science Theater and is one of the center?s most favorite attractions.
