We visited the Punxy Weather Discovery Center on Saturday, August 12, 2017. Posted hours on the door stated the center was open until 4 p.m., with last admission at 3:30. We arrived at 3:05 to find the door locked. We were extremely disappointed.

A side trip to here was an excellent way to spend some time to learn more about the weather with new technology. And old wives tales are they true? You have to see for your self there families your kids would enjoy this!

The Discovery Center is a great place for children as it has many hands on activities for them. Very interesting facts about weather and there is a very educational 20 minute film you can watch. The staff was very friendly.
