The California Science Center welcomes you to visit the Space Shuttle Endeavour! While they are building Endeavour’s permanent home, a new addition to the Science Center called the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center, Endeavour can be viewed in the Samuel Oschin Space Shuttle Endeavour Display Pavilion.
When you come to see Endeavour you will begin your experience in Endeavour: The California Story, a companion exhibit featuring images and artifacts that relate the shuttle program to California, where the orbiters were built. Following your visit to The California Story, you will be directed to the Samuel Oschin Pavilion to see the space shuttle.
The California Science Center, named by Forbes.com as the most popular museum destination in Southern California, has received more than 18 million visitors since opening in February 1998. The Science Center provides a rare 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 offers permanent and changing exhibits and related educational programming through several galleries spanning more than 400,000 sq. feet.
World of Life, probes the commonalities of the living world, from the single-celled bacterium to the 100-trillion-celled human being.
Creative World examines the ways people employ technology to meet their needs for transportation, communication, and structures.
The SKETCH Foundation Air and Space Gallery combines items owned by the Science Center and a stunning array of items on loan from the Smithsonian Institution to introduce visitors to the aerospace industry and to the exploration of the stars and the planets.
The Science Center also features a non-profit, educationally focused IMAX Theater with a capacity to create images of exceptional clarity and impact through the use of the largest film frame in the motion picture industry.
Their seven-story IMAX screen—the largest in Los Angeles—brings to life worlds as small as an atom and as vast as the universe. Over 100 hands-on exhibits in their FREE EXHIBIT HALLS make science concepts easy to grasp and fun to explore for the whole family. Experience an IMAX movie and get the big picture!
