Local News

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — For families choosing to have a staycation, or who are not able leave Birmingham for Spring Break, there are a lot of ways to entertain your kids right here in the Magic City.

The McWane Science Center is a great attraction, especially if Batman or Superman are your kids favorite super heroes. The number one event going on there this week is the Batman vs. Superman movie in Imax.

“It’s going to be an amazing movie,” McWane Marketing Assistant Kevin Van Hyning said. “About 30 minutes of the film was specifically filmed for the dome screens, so you really want to see it at the McWane Science Center because you’re going to get the full effect of those scenes.”

The theme at the science center this year is super hero spring training, and Superman and Batman will be at the science center for meet and greets. It’s also brain awareness week, where McWane partners with UAB Neurology students who come and teach kids what’s inside the brain and an eye.

Birmingham Mommy provided a top ten list of fun things to do with your family. The McWane Center ranked number two.
