Family Science Night

Do you miss out on Parents’ Night Out because you’re an adult? Then come with your family for some experimenting and exploring at Pacific Science Center. Visit our exhibits after hours, perform hands-on experiments and learn while you play as a family. In each session, your family will travel between stations focusing on a different science topic. You can make memories with your little one all while learning and doing science.
