The California Science Center’s mission is to stimulate curiosity and inspire science learning in everyone, by creating fun, memorable experiences. We are an internationally recognized leader in informal science education and currently undertaking our biggest endeavor yet – to build the new Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center, a major expansion and the permanent home of Space Shuttle Endeavour.
EndeavourLA is the California Science Center Foundation’s $250 million campaign to build the new Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center, a 200,000 square foot addition to the California Science Center's main building. The new addition will join together existing exhibits with three stories of new galleries. Long envisioned as Phase III of the Science Center’s 25-year Master Plan, this major expansion will include a diverse collection of aircraft and spacecraft, and hands-on, educational exhibits that encourage active learning through discovery. EndeavourLA will inspire a new generation of scientists, innovators and explorers.
