The California Science Center remains temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Detailed plans that provide for the safety of our guests and staff are being developed as we look forward to welcoming everyone back. We are continuing to consult state and local government agencies for guidance on safety measures.
Our mission to inspire science learning in everyone continues virtually with Stuck at Home Science activities and the newly added Science Beyond the Center program, featuring interviews, podcasts and behind-the-scenes perspectives of our exhibits, all available for free on our website.
We will share our progress and announce the date for reopening via email, our social media channels and website once it is confirmed.
Admission to the Science Center's permanent exhibition galleries is FREE (excluding IMAX and Special Exhibits). Enhance your experience by visiting our special exhibitions.
The Science Center offers self-guided experiences of Permanent and Special Exhibit galleries, Big Lab interactive programs, and IMAX Movies at discounted prices for Field Trips and Groups of 15 or more. Field trips and group attendance have been temporarily suspended to allow for safe distancing.
South of downtown Los Angeles, the Science Center is located in historic Exposition Park which is across the street from the Expo Park/USC Station on the Metro Expo Line. By car, the Science Center is two blocks west of the Harbor (110) Freeway at the Exposition Boulevard exit.
