Chabot Space & Science Center

From the spectacular and grandiose—such as far-reaching telescopes that penetrate the cosmos and bring back crystal-clear views of the stars—to the most curious minutiae—think "space toilets" like those used by astronauts on the International Space Station—Chabot Space & Science Center captures the science, mystery, and grandeur of outer space in an interactive and educational setting.

The big picture comes courtesy of the observatory's three high-powered telescopes, which grants Chabot its domed silhouette and provides visitors a privileged view of the stars during daytime and evening viewings. Things narrow in scope once you enter the museum, where interactive exhibits zero in on the smaller curiosities of space and Earth's relationship to it. The aforementioned space toilet is a part of the Beyond Blastoff exhibit, where spacesuits, space gear, and space food paint a picture of an astronaut's day-to-day life. One Giant Leap: A Moon Odyssey gives visitors another taste of space exploration, this time by putting them behind the controls of the original Mercury space capsule, then puts them face to face with a 3.3-billion-year-old moon rock collected during the Apollo 15 mission.

Chabot Space & Science Center also features shows such as ElectroLaze, a classic-rock-fueled spectacle where light and sound—a 360-degree cocoon of cutting-edge laser lights set to music by The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and U2, specifically—team up for an explosive sensory experience.

Customer Reviews

Give yourself lots of time My kids loved the Bill Nye Science Lab and would have stayed there all day! We also loved all the space things the kids could see and touch!

The extended evening hours for star gazing, special events, and the science films are such an awesome bonus beyond the hands-on experiments and educational science offered at this beautiful facility. Their guest speakers are well-respected in their fields of study; this institute definitely has the pulse of what is happening in our world. I have a girl, who designs and creates with Goldiblocks - and to our surprise Chabot Space & Science Center featured a fantastic event - for all children - using Goldiblocks. Thanks for supporting STEM girls!
