North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences locations in Pitt County

The time has come for Pitt County science centers to evolve. A leading-edge partnership with A Time for Science has led to new North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences locations in Pitt County.

The Time for Innovation

Greenville residents once knew it as “A Time for Science.” However, the center is now one of the newest branches of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.

According to a museum press release, A Time for Science recently expanded. This includes the addition and renovation of the neighboring 3,500-square-foot space. Plans for the space include new exhibits, a children’s discovery area, a weather center, and a naturalist center.

The Greenville location is set to open sometime this year. Located at 729 Dickinson Ave., the museum is in the heart of the city.

Both the museum and former center stated how this exciting partnership allows them to achieve their mission more fully. That mission: sparking a life-long love for science and nature!

More Museum Details

In the press release, NC Museum of Natural Sciences’ Director and CEO Eric Dorfman said the Greenville museum will have a “distinctive northeastern North Carolina flair.” To that end, the first couple of exhibits are on pirates and pollinators with support from East Carolina University.

The museum will announce hours closer to opening. Admission is free to all branches of the NC Museum of Natural Sciences. A good way to keep up with the latest news from opening dates to exhibits and programs is to like them on Facebook.
