We aspire to stimulate curiosity and inspire science learning in everyone by creating fun, memorable experiences, because we value science as an indispensable tool for understanding our world, accessibility and inclusiveness, and enriching people’s lives.
The California Science Center provides an innovative model for science learning by combining exhibits with an on-site Science Center School and Amgen Center for Science Learning as well as a teacher professional development program.
The Science Center is open to the public seven days a week, 362 days per year, with free general admission to its permanent exhibit galleries. Opening in February 1998, the Center spans more than 400,000 sq. feet and includes four major exhibit areas.
