SciTech Hands On Museum is celebrating

In 1988, Ernest Malamud had a dream for the future. He reached out to his friends, his co-workers, and his community and together, they created a reality that has touched MILLIONS of people. What started as one man’s dream for the future has become the reality of SciTech Hands On Museum where children and adults alike explore knowledge and discover concepts and imagine THEIR future.
