Da Vinci Announces Opening Date for New Science Center in Allentown

The Da Vinci Science Center, a long-awaited addition to the PPL Pavilion in downtown Allentown, is set to open its doors to the public on May 22. The excitement surrounding this new education center is palpable, as it replaces the existing facility on the Cedar Crest College campus.

The inaugural exhibit at the venue will be Dinos Alive, an immersive experience that showcases 30 life-sized animated dinosaurs, from Velociraptors to the iconic T-rex. This state-of-the-art 67,000-square-foot science education facility will offer interactive experiences for visitors, such as exploring the human body in the LVHN My Body exhibit or meeting North American River Otters in the Pocono Ravine presented by Alvin H. Butz.

Lin Erickson, executive director and CEO of the center, expressed her excitement about the long-awaited opening. She emphasized the strong community support that made it possible and highlighted the center’s mission to make science come alive and bring lives to science, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s curiosity.

In addition to the exhibit galleries, the Da Vinci Science Center at PPL Pavilion will offer amenities like fully equipped classrooms, cutting-edge laboratories, and interactive workshops to engage visitors of all ages. There will even be a rooftop terrace for private events, adding to the overall experience of exploring, learning, and discovering at this premier science center in the Lehigh Valley.
