Chabot Space & Science Center
Chabot Space & Science Center is located in the beautiful Oakland Hills just off Highway 13 in Oakland, California. A Smithsonian affiliate, Chabot is an educational science center whose mission is to educate students of all ages about Planet Earth and the Universe.
This 86,000 square foot center offers interactive space and science exhibitions, immersive digital-dome planetarium shows, and giant screen MegaDome shows. Chabot is also home to largest research-quality telescopes open to the public west of the Mississippi.
We offer many exciting opportunities for kids to get involved, get excited and get engaged! Check out our Discovery Lab, submit a question to a real life Astronomer or Scientist, take a photo in our replica Gemini Transport Capsule, participate in a demonstration, celebrate a birthday or look through a telescope at the same stars that kids looked at over a hundred years ago. Kids can bring their parents to our Tykes Explorers program, Girl Power workshops, participate in Space Explorers Summer Camp, or vanquish energy vampires in our Bills Climate Lab online game and much more.
