Named by Forbes.com as the most popular museum destination in Southern California, the California Science Center offers hands-on experiences that appeal to people of all ages. You'll learn about human inventions and innovations, the life processes of living things and more. From digital imaging to solar cars and earthquake-resistant buildings, Creative World showcases advances humans make to fill the needs for communication, structures and transportation. In World of Life , discover how living creatures—from the single-celled amoeba all the way up to 100-trillion-celled human being—have the same life processes in common. Come visit Ecosystems , our newest permanent exhibit that houses nearly 400 plant and animal species. From walking through a living kelp forest to experimenting on a polar ice wall, you can investigate some of the Earth's most fascinating ecosystems.
