McWane Science Center looks to future as Itty Bitty Magic City turns 1

Birmingham’s McWane Science Center marked a milestone this month, when its popular children’s museum, Itty Bitty Magic City, turned a year old.

The $5 million facility, the largest capital expenditure at McWane since its 1998 opening, welcomed more than 300,000 guests during the past year and put on 1,100 different programs.

Covering 9,300 square feet, Itty Bitty Magic City is dedicated to McWane’s youngest visitors – newborns to kindergartners – and features a miniature Main Street set-up with a diner, grocery store, veterinarian, farm, garage, fire station and more.

There’s also a water play area, climbing structure and a tot spot.
