Closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day
Visit every day over winter break to experience your favorite programs and exhibits. Learn about space exploration in the Planetarium, engineer marble machines in the Ingenuity Lab, and meet real animals in the Animal Discovery Room. We'll be open 7 days a week during Winter Weeks.
Start your year off right with Science! Bring your entire family this New Year's Eve for an exciting day of hands-on scientific fun. Get ready to cheer as hundreds of balloons and an apple cider toast mark the celebration of a new year.
Find out more about upcoming community events that feature the Hall’s programs, activities, and exhibits.
Parties and Rentals
Celebrate your birthday or any other occasion by treating friends to a private and hands-on hour-long science workshop. Choose from several popular themes, such as the solar system, inventing, or animal discovery.
Business meetings, office parties, weddings, and reunions are better at the Lawrence Hall of Science. Treat your guests to a panoramic Bay view, dynamic science exhibits, and friendly service.
