The Chabot Space & Science Center is located in Oakland, California, and was founded as an observatory in 1883. It is named after the father of hydraulic mining and benefactor of the original Oakland Observatory, Anthony Chabot. Today, Chabot’s mission is to be a place for students of all ages can visit to learn and be inspired about the universe and our planet Earth.

Chabot offers visitors hands-on, interactive exhibits, displays and planetarium shows, combined with a full program of activity-filled classes, workshops, camps, outreach programs and special events. Chabot is also home to the three largest telescopes on the West Coast, making it the largest public observatory in the country. The museum is an affiliate in the Smithsonian Affiliations program.

Our work with the Chabot Space & Science Center, ranges from strategic planning and the development of teacher workshops to the support of a variety of exhibitions.
