Project Description

The new Powerhouse Science Center, an adaptive reuse of the historic PG&E Power Station, will be eight times the current center’s size and will include a Planetarium and Challenger Learning Center, scientific discovery labs, hands-on exhibits, a full-dome digital theater, and be an ideal venue for science expos. It will teach by example and feature low-impact and sustainable green practices for water, energy and resource efficiencies. The Powerhouse Science Center will facilitate gatherings among its partners, commercial enterprises and local technology leaders to help researchers move their discoveries into the marketplace. It will serve as a catalyst for the downtown Sacramento neighborhood development and be a vibrant component of the River District. The estimated annual attendance is 320,000.
