Our Future

Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center Logo

Projected to open in 2018, the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center will be a 188,000 square foot addition to the California Science Center’s main building, joining our existing exhibits and programs. The expansion will feature three galleries of permanent exhibits:

  • Air Gallery
  • Space Gallery
  • Space Shuttle Gallery featuring Endeavour

The new galleries will encourage guests of all ages to understand key scientific and engineering principles related to atmospheric flight and the exploration of our universe. The Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center will integrate authentic artifacts, including a diverse collection of aircraft and spacecraft, immersive experiences and our signature hands-on, educational exhibits that encourage active learning through discovery.

The Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center is the primary component of Phase III of the California Science Center's 25-year Master Plan. When finished, the California Science Center will be the largest science center in the western United States.

Looking ahead to our future, we remain committed to expanding learning opportunities and inspiring innovation and creativity.
