Arizona Science Center

The Arizona Science Center, a museum of science and technology in Phoenix, AZ, was founded by the city’s museum organization and is located at 600 East Washington Street. The building was designed by Antoine Predock, who also created a permanent interactive exhibition on Earth resource topics within its five-story IMAX Theater, as well as one that changes every few months. These shows may include live animals or exhibits from various slams around the world, such as our own back yard—The Grand Canyon.

Come to the Arizona Science Center for a day full of hands-on activities; test out your knowledge with interactive experiments and see what it feels like to be an astronaut. The museum offers more than 200 science demonstrations daily. You can even participate in our IMAX theater show.

The iconic Arizona Science Center, previously known as the Museum of Science and Technology (MST), was born in 1980. The Junior League had envisioned this place for years before they put their dream into action by creating it later on through initiatives taken within Phoenix’s downtown area, where there are plenty more visitors than just residents, which will provide greater opportunities to showcase all that our state has going on, scientifically speaking too.

Following a long period of high demand, the 120 thousand square foot building was finished in 1997.The science center’s first year saw more than 87,500 visitors come through its doors. The Science Center has been a popular destination since it opened its doors in 1997. That same year, the 120 thousand square foot building was completed, allowing visitors to experience science, technology, engineering, and mathematics all in one location.The most well-known program is Snow Week, where kids get into an educational ice-bound winter wonderland complete with learning opportunities for every age group, from toddlers up through high school students, including special programs just like those found within the Phoenix Museum of History collection.

Plan your day at the Arizona Science Center, where there’s so much to see and do. The four levels of exciting hands-on exhibits will engage you with captivating science experiments; our state-of-the-art planetarium puts on an incredible show while dramatically enhancing visitors’ understanding of space exploration efforts through history (and beyond); plus, they have a five-story high giant screen theater for movies or shows that want everyone in attendance close enough together—all thanks again to their massive screens.

The Arizona Science Center is excited to introduce the new Blue Crew. They work as ambassadors throughout every gallery, encouraging visitors and leading hands-on activities such as live demonstrations or interactive workshops where you can get your questions answered.
