Saint Louis Science Center

With more than 700 hands-on exhibits in a multi-building complex, the Saint Louis Science Center (SLSC) is among the largest science centers in the country. Every year, nearly one million visitors enjoy the Science Center’s exhibit galleries, James S. McDonnell Planetarium, OMNIMAX Theater, and rich variety of public programs for all ages. SLSC was named one of the “Top 10 Science Centers for Families” by Parents magazine and one of “America’s Most Visited Museums” by Forbes Traveler Magazine. Admission to the Science Center is free through a public subsidy from the Metropolitan Zoological Park and Museum District. SLSC’s mission is “to ignite and sustain life-long science and technology learning.” Through the Agricultural exhibition, we will begin a museum-wide initiative to develop innovative approaches to engaging the public with science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM).
