Aquarist Volunteers assist the McWane Aquarists in the maintenance of fresh and saltwater fish, invertebrates, and reptile species, as well as the systems these animals inhabit. They learn daily, weekly, and monthly husbandry duties required to sustain our aquatic collection and keep the exhibits looking great. Aquarist Volunteers should be self-motivated with a desire to learn and a willingness to get wet and dirty while cleaning the tanks and preparing food. Aquarist Volunteers should also be able to stand, stoop, or kneel for extended periods of time.

Mission Statement

To spark wonder and curiosity about our world through hands-on science experiences.

Description

McWane Science Center is the cornerstone of Birmingham, Alabama's downtown revitalization. This state-of-the-art museum is housed in the historic and refurbished Loveman's department store building.

In 1998, Discovery Place and Red Mountain Museum merged to create a stimulating interactive science museum now called McWane Science Center.

McWane Science Center, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, gets its name from the McWane family and McWane Foundation, sources of funding that made the center a reality for Birmingham and the region.

Designed to inspire a life-long love of learning, McWane Science Center has welcomed millions of visitors since opening its doors in 1998. Explorers -- from ages 1 to 100 -- flock year-round to see, to hear, to touch, and to experience the wonder of science in one of the South's most unique venues.
