About Akron Fossils & Science Center

Akron Fossils & Science Center exists to provide learners of all ages with balanced, affordable, and hands-on educational opportunities to examine and explore the science of the world, past, present, and future. Through a diverse range of educational programming, we strive to inspire critical thought and instill a strong foundational love of science at an early age. Our goal is to come alongside the educators of Summit County to make science fun, equipping children with the tools and inspiration they need to make a positive impact on their world.

Today, our mission exists as one tree, rooted in quality, hands-on science education, with two main branches: Community Education and Creation Education. Together, these two domains work together to ignite a passion for learning and exploration that lasts a lifetime


About the Creation Education Museum

Located inside the Akron Fossils & Science Center, this small museum is dedicated to exploring new theories in many different areas of science, especially on topics
that concern the origin of the Universe and life. With 18 exhibits to explore, participants can spend time contemplating ideas about origins like the Intelligent Design theory, the catastrophism theory, and flood based geology.
