When the weather says, “Stay inside you fool,” the Great Lakes Science Center next to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a worthy response. The more than 400 hands-on exhibits offer a diverse approach to all things scientific. Of particular note is the BioMedTech Gallery that highlights medical advances and research. Considering that the city is home to Cleveland Clinic, one of the top medical centers in the world, this is only fitting. Also fitting is the new NASA Glenn Visitor Center. Heard of John Glenn? He’s that Ohioan who was the first American to orbit the moon, and who returned to space at age 77. The center named after him focuses on all things having to do with space travel. Phase One, with the real-deal Skylab 3 Apollo Command Module and 50 other exhibits, is open, but the center won’t be complete until 2011.
