You cannot beat the Danville Science Center if you want interactive fun with your children. The Butterfly Garden is incredible. We LOVED this place and will go again!

Don’t miss the Butterfly Garden. In season it is magical! Appeals to all ages from the youngest to the oldest. Right next to a walking trail along the Dan River.
