Spartanburg Science Center celebrates its 45th anniversary in 2023

It’s a lot in just three rooms.

Go to the end of the hallway on the second floor of the Montgomery Building in the Chapman Cultural Center and there it is: the John F. Green Spartanburg Science Center.

If you’re between the ages of 5 and 65, pay your $5 and walk through the doors into a jam-packed experience for anyone who loves any kind of science.

Look to the left and you’ll spot Teak the Tegu in his two-story lizard den, just outside the animal room, home to snakes and turtles, bearded dragons, and other creatures.

Look to the right and it’s the Fossil Room, with its artifacts and skeletons, a miniature natural history museum, complete with an elephant skull that stretches over 9 feet across.
