Curiosity Never Closes: We Need Your Support Now

As this region’s science center, Pacific Science Center’s work is more important than ever. Science and an informed public are humanity’s best hopes in addressing COVID-19 and other threats. While we are closed to the public, we will work as hard as we can to continue serving the community with Curiosity at Home, content about COVID-19, and other programs that we can deliver online and digitally. PacSci depends on financial support from the community, especially now. Please consider donating generously.
