New Da Vinci Science Center Coming to Downtown Allentown: A Hands-on, Curiosity-Driven Adventure Awaits!

Opening Date Announced for Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown

After years of planning and hard work, the new Da Vinci Science Center is set to open in downtown Allentown. The center will be located at the PPL Pavilion and will open its doors on May 22. The facility, which spans over 67,000 square feet at Eighth and Hamilton streets, promises interactive experiences for visitors.

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. The center’s mission is to bring science to life and lives to science, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s insatiable curiosity.

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. 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 The current location of Da Vinci Science Center at Cedar Crest College will close on April 1st in preparation for this exciting new move.
