Welcome to aha moments that launch a million questions – questions as infinite and strange as the cosmos, and just as thrilling to explore.

Test the laws of physics in live Amazing Science Demonstrations, sneak by a life-sized animatronic Tyrannosaurus rex, explore the night sky uninterrupted by city lights, or build a replica of the Gateway Arch. Anything is possible.

As a nonprofit, the Saint Louis Science Center depends on members and donors to support our mission and make STEM education accessible to everyone.
