Science & Nature Museums
The Eastern NC region is an ecological wonder! Greenville and Pitt County have tidal rivers and cypress swamps, bald eagles and black bears, and so much more to learn about and explore! Start out in Uptown Greenville at the NC Museum of Natural Science at A Time for Science- Greenville to check out interactive exhibits and to learn about how nature and STEM are intertwined. Then head over to the Walter L. Stasavich Science & Nature Center at the lush 320-acre River Park North for hands-on outdoor activities and live exhibits of fish and animals native to Eastern NC. Make your way south to the NC Museum of Natural Sciences at A Time for Science- Grifton Campus to camp out, adventure on the trails, and kayak around the ponds on this scenic 400-acre rural campus and experience the galaxy at their Chia-Yu Li Planetarium and Kitty & Max Joyner Observatory.
