California Science Center

The California Science Center (sometimes spelt California Science center) is a museum and state agency in Los Angeles’s Exposition Park, next to the University of Southern California and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. The California Scientific Center is a public-private partnership between the State of California and the California Science Center Foundation, and it is promoted as the largest hands-on science center on the West Coast. The California Science Center and the California African American Museum are under the purview of the California Natural Resources Agency. The California Science Center, originally opened in 1951 as the California Museum of Science and Industry, had a major renovation and name change in 1998. In the state of California, the annual State Science Fair is held at the California Science Center.

The Space Shuttle Endeavour and other famous aircraft and spacecraft are among the permanent exhibits visitors can see as part of their paid admission. Special activities including the climbing wall, motion simulator, and high-wire bicycle ride, as well as IMAX films, are not included in the price of general admission. The center is a member of the Association of Science and Technology Centers and has received accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The institution participates in the Smithsonian Affiliations program as well.

The two-story, 45,000-square-foot exhibition comprises display zones with live animals and aquariums about wildlife and adaptation in different habitats, such as a river, desert, polar region, deep sea, ocean, island, and urban areas, as well as the entire planet Earth. Construction, energy, and transportation are just a few of the subjects explored through interactive activities and exhibitions at the Creative World.

The museum has been around since 1912, when the first California State Exhibition building opened at Los Angeles’s Exposition Park, which had previously served as an agricultural exposition between the years 1872 and 1910. Ranching, fish and game, coal mining, gold mining, oil production, lumbering, and some of the state’s recreational attractions were all on show in the brick and terra cotta edifice built by William D. Coates, Jr., state architect, and N. Ellery, state engineer. After WWII, the building included displays showcasing the state’s postwar efforts to advance science and technology.

The California Museum of Science and Industry was established in 1951. Building formerly known as the State Exhibition was rechristened as the Howard F. Ahmanson Building to recognize a notable benefactor and trustee. Topics covered in the hands-on exhibits ranged from agriculture and transportation to electricity and energy to minerals and manufacturing.
