See Yourself In Science


Science can take us to great places—and the people who make it happen are important. Engineers create new structures, biologists discover novel species, and archeologists find secrets buried in the past—but great science can only happen when everyone gets a chance to be a part of it.

That’s why we want you to see yourself in science.

Astronauts working on Apollo.

We’re celebrating the human ingenuity that took humankind to space with Apollo: When We Went to the Moon, a new exhibit with real objects and stories from the Moon landing, and Apollo: First Steps Edition, an Omnitheater film that takes you straight to the heart of the action.

Experience Space

Engineers create the structures and systems in the world we call home. This year, we’re highlighting the contributions of women in science and engineering at Women in Science and Engineering (WISE), celebrating Civil Engineering Day, and having fun with science at Spark, Slime, and Speed.

Explore STEM & Engineering Events

Experience math hands-on in Math Moves, a permanent exhibit that gets everybody excited about mathematical ideas. Walk among ancient giants and examine real bones in the Dinosaurs & Fossils gallery. Trade in and talk about rocks, bugs, and other natural objects you find in your backyard at the Collector’s Corner.
