Science Court

When you enter the California Science Center, you'll step inside Science Court, a fun-filled space that features science demonstrations, special exhibits and even a bike you can ride across a cable three stories above the ground! Science Court is made up of three special areas: Edgerton Court on the first floor, Disney Science Court on the second floor, and Mark Taper Sky Court, located on the third floor.

Science Court also offers special exhibits and programs that change often, so check the schedule for upcoming events.

Science Court Attractions

Air and Space Exhibits

Visit the Science Center's Air and Space exhibits in their new home in Science Court! Exhibits are making the move from the SKETCH Foundation Gallery (now closed), so check Science Court often to find out if your favorite aerospace artifacts have arrived.

High-Wire Bicycle

Defy the laws of gravity! Ride a bicycle across a one-inch-wide cable 43 feet above the ground, and experience a thrilling lesson in physics!

Motion-Based Simulator

Our multi-sensory motion-based simulators make you part of the action. Available learning experiences include themes from air and space as well as a variety of other interesting science topics.

Shuttles meet nose-to-nose

On October 11, 2011, NASA officially transferred title and ownership of space shuttle Endeavour to the California Science Center during a ceremony at the Science Center in Los Angeles. The transfer is the first step toward the Science Center receiving Endeavour in 2012. The STS-134 crew, Endeavour's last, attended the ceremony. They are pictured here in front of the Apollo-Soyuz Command Module in Science Court. From left to right are Mike Fincke, STS-134 Commander Mark Kelly, California Science Center president Jeff Rudolph, Drew Feustel and Greg Johnson.
