The public science center of the University of California, Berkeley.
Open Wednesday - Sunday
10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
April 1 - 9 open daily
Bring your students to The Lawrence, or bring our inquiry-based 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.
We encourage visitors and members to reserve tickets online. Tickets are sold by entry time and there are a limited number of tickets available per hour. Reserving online guarantees your spot.
For free passes, reciprocal discounts, Museums for All, and Blue Star Museums, instead of reserving tickets, simply come to the museum with the pass or appropriate proof of discount status.
While masks are no longer required indoors, we strongly encourage all visitors to wear a mask to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Help us keep our youngest future scientists healthy!
