While we are temporarily closed to the public, the California Science Center is committed to supporting our community with free online science learning opportunities. Our Stuck at Home Science hands-on activity series is designed for children and families to explore, investigate and have fun learning together without leaving home. To make these resources accessible to everyone, and prepare to reopen our doors, we need your help more than ever.
Please support our mission to inspire science learning in everyone during these challenging times by donating, or becoming a Member today.
In consultation with the State of California, the California Science Center will be closed temporarily effective Monday, March 16. This decision was made to support the efforts of state and local health authorities to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.
The closure will include all California Science Center exhibitions, IMAX films, events and programs. We will keep our community informed of further updates by email, on our website and through Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Created with the latest high definition imagery and scientific data, Touch the Stars 3D will transport viewers to planets and distant stars alongside these robotic explorers as they journey from the heart of our solar system to the outer planets and beyond.
