Mission Statement

Powerhouse Science Center is an educational institution dedicated to engaging and inspiring people of all ages to explore the wonders, possibilities, and responsibilities of science.

Description

Originally founded in 1951 as the California Junior Museum, the Discovery Museum was designed as a space where children could experience science and nature through interactive programs and exhibits. We've operated for 65 years as a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization, supplying informal science education for 19 counties in the greater Sacramento area. Today, the Powerhouse Science Center is one of the Sacramento region's premier institutions with an emphasis on STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education and hands-on learning, and we are about to get even better!
