The Lawrence Hall of Science
The public science center of the University of California, Berkeley.
Wednesday - Sunday
10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
We’ll bring our science programs to you.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
At The Lawrence Hall of Science, discovery runs through everything we do. We foster scientific exploration with a focus on equitable learning experiences. Whether we’re designing curriculum, engaging learners, or empowering educators, we believe in the transformative power of learning made fun: when “ha ha” moments become “aha!” moments.
