Welcome back, Space Shuttle Endeavour. Good to see you, Kelp Forest. We missed you, Art of the Brick.
The California Science Center reopened its doors to visitors on Saturday, on March 27, and a science hungry throng was eager to get inside.
The museum, shut down by the pandemic, is subject to safety rules as Los Angeles County resides in the red tier for coronavirus restrictions — including face coverings and 25 percent visitor capacity. Timed entry reservations are required for all guests. Reservations can be made online in advance with a small service fee.
“We are thrilled to reopen and invite guests to enjoy the power of real experiences,” Science Center President Jeffrey Rudolph said. “Science is core to everything we do and our reopening protocols reflect the guidance of state and local health agencies as well as the Science Center’s public health and infectious disease expert advisors.” Some of the safety measures include:
The center’s IMAX theater also reopened with two big-screen, HD features, “Hubble” and “Under the Sea,” both shown in 2D on the theater’s seven-story screen.
Guests can also look forward to two new exhibitions: “COVID-19 – All in This Together,” premiering in April and “Life! Beginnings,” opening in June.
