The Lawrence Hall of Science
The public science center of the University of California, Berkeley.
10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
On a visit to The Lawrence, students collaborate to investigate new ideas as they become scientists and engineers for a day.
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.
Come celebrate with The Lawrence as we open our first expansion in over 20 years—the brand new Robert and Elizabeth Karplus Outdoor Nature Lab! Bring your family and friends to explore this outdoor space: climb the stump stairs, practice using spotting scopes and binoculars to observe our local wildlife, test out our new self-facilitated activity guides, or sit and enjoy the wonderful view.
To celebrate this special day, admission to The Lawrence Hall of Science will be just $5.
