With events in all three Whitaker Center venues and special events throughout, we’ve got plenty of holiday fun to unwrap this holiday season.

A holiday exhibit(ion) in fun - Whitaker Wonderland offers indoor winter fun for the whole family! Take a few laps around the sock skate rink and check out the snowball pit. Whitaker Wonderland opens November 16 and is included in Harsco Science Center admission.

Castle Builder: A LEGO® Building Exhibit

Builders of all ages are invited to explore, build and play in the traveling exhibition – Castle Builder! In this exhibit kids and their families are transported to a fanciful kingdom where they too can become castle builders, building their own toy castle brick by brick. Aim a catapult, explore a giant castle and visit a dragon’s cave all while exploring the function and secrets of castle building! Castle Builder: A LEGO® Building Exhibit opens November 6 and is included in Harsco Science Center admission.
