River District Stories: Danville Science Center

The Danville Science Center is a division of the Science Museum of Virginia and is their first satellite location. Our mission is to inspire our visitors to enrich their lives through science. We want people to think about their world differently, to look at it through the lens of science and how science affects all facets of their daily life.  What does that mean? I often tell people that if our guests have left here with more questions than when they arrived, then we have succeeded in our mission.
