Mission:

Pacific Science Center is a not-for-profit science foundation serving one million people a year in every county of Washington state, inspiring a lifelong interest in science, math and technology by engaging diverse communities through interactive and innovative exhibits and programs.

Our History:

Pacific Science Center began as the United States Science Pavilion during the 1962 Seattle World's Fair. Millions came to explore the wonders of science during the World's Fair and upon closing ceremonies, the Science Pavilion was given new life as the private not-for-profit Pacific Science Center, becoming the first U.S. museum founded as a science and technology center.

On July 22, 2010 Pacific Science Center was declared a City of Seattle Landmark. On October 22, 2012 Pacific Science Center celebrated making science fun for 50 years.

Our Position On Science:

Pacific Science Center is committed to advancing the public's understanding of science and contributing to the development of a scientifically literate society. Science is a human endeavor that uses observation and experimentation to develop explanations of the natural world. Scientific knowledge and theories are grounded in and compatible with the best evidence of the time, are internally consistent, and demonstrate effectively the explanations of a wide variety of phenomena. Science is based on years of scientific experimentation and observation of the results which are critically reviewed by the scientific community. Pacific Science Center uses data and information based on such rigorous scientific evidence in its exhibits, demonstrations and science curricula.
