This year marks an important milestone for three Bay Area science museums. The Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley and the Exploratorium in San Francisco are both celebrating 50 years of providing science education to the Bay Area, while The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose is celebrating two decades of inspiring innovation with its 20th anniversary.

The foundation is happy to support all three museums – they have each provided exciting and innovative projects and exhibits to their communities, and will continue to do so in the years to come.

More information will be shared throughout the year. 

The Exploratorium

After half a century of innovation, the Exploratorium is still constantly prototyping the next big data. Join them on their journey as they look eagerly ahead to the next 50 years of transforming science education and lifting up the scientists, teachers, and engineers of the future.

Special events and exhibits will be hosted throughout the year.

Lawrence Hall of Science

The Hall was founded in 1968 as part of UC Berkeley’s centennial celebration. It was named in honor of Ernest O. Lawrence, the University’s first Nobel Laureate. Since then, they have made it their mission to foster and inspire the learning of science for all.

Visit them throughout the year, for a series of anniversary events

The Tech Museum of Innovation

It’s been two decades since The Tech opened their doors to inspire innovators young and old. Over the years, they’ve hosted exhibits from Leonardo da Vinci to Star Trek to MythBusters. They’ve camped out with other community members for Star Wars premieres, and been the field trip of choice for many Bay Area students.

Take a look at The Tech’s version of “memory lane” and visit them all year long to see their latest innovative exhibits.
